Introduce the 2013 Peer Learning Forums

Participation in the Peer Learning Forum is restricted to state and territorial RPE grantees and their local subgrantees, state DELTA FOCUS grantees and their local grantees, state/territorial sexual violence coalitions and state/territorial domestic violence coalitions.

Peer Learning Forums are PreventConnect’s newest online forum for sexual violence and domestic violence prevention practitioners to learn from each other to strengthen their prevention work. The Peer Learning Forum is designed to go deeper into prevention topics in a series of three web conferences with a targeted audience. Peer Learning Forums will include use of online resources such as podcasts and eLearning units.

There is growing understanding of the value of implementing population-level strategies to prevent sexual and domestic violence. Many preventionists find themselves in favor of implementing more population-based strategies that shift whole community norms, but without a guide on how to make that shift in their work and in their agency. All too often the field’s infrastructures and expertise have been built with a focus on individually-based strategies and there is little space to explore the benefit of work at the community level.

The first Peer Learning Forum will focus on opportunities to use the current infrastructure to build up to more community-level impact. We will also examine what we can learn from other fields and how to make the case for this shift. Together we can raise ideas, critique them and ask each other how we can go further. Join us as we expand the collective wisdom on promising approaches and pitfalls. Participants will engage in a candid conversation with peers and national experts to build capacity for going beyond curriculum.

What is a Peer Learning Forum?
Peer Learning Forums are PreventConnect’s newest online forum for sexual violence and domestic violence prevention practitioners to learn from each other to strengthen their prevention work. The Peer Learning Forum is designed to go deeper into prevention topics in a series of three web conferences with a targeted audience. During each Peer Learning Forum series, participants will use other online resources (such as podcasts or eLearning units) to discuss during subsequent sessions.

What is a Web Conference?
A web conference is an opportunity to attend an online presentation by watching a slides on your computer screen (using your internet connection) and hearing the presenters through your telephone. Our web conferences feature an opportunity to participate in an online question & answer sessions and live text chat between participants.
