Workplace changes occurring each day and more rapidly call for significant innovations in the way we educate and train people for their professional careers. The new global and digital economies call for fluidity, resilience, and readiness for rapid reskilling to meet changing demands. The many papers collected in this publication reveal just a small sample of the innovations being explored in education and training around the world. Many of these originated as goals to increase access for learners, to make learning more efficient, or to increase the impacts of training initiatives to ensure the investments of learners and teachers are well rewarded.
The papers represent innovations within the community that includes educators and trainers preparing people to work in meteorology, hydrology, climate services and related fields, as well as the communities that these professionals serve. It is just a snapshot of what is possible, but an eye-opening picture nonetheless.
