The UNESCO Chair on Community Media, with support from Commonwealth
Educational Media Centre for Asia
New Delhi, will conduct *two workshops* towards building the capacities of
Peers for self-assessment using the Community Radio-Continuous Improvement
Toolkit <http://uccommedia.in/cr-continuous-improvement-toolkit/> (CR-CIT).
The toolkit, which is already in the public domain, has been designed to
assist Community Radio stations in undertaking periodic self-assessment of
performance and take necessary steps to strengthen individual radio
stations, the personnel working with them, and the sector as a whole. The
toolkit was field-tested in India and Bangladesh and a revised version is
now available in English and Hindi.

The training workshops will be held for *15 peers each*, with the following

   - Enable CR Stations to make best use of CR-CIT
   - Promote a culture of co-learning within the CR community
   - Facilitate understanding of the self-assessment and peer review
   process of CR-CIT
   - Inculcate appreciation of the core principles of CR as enshrined in
   the nine parameters of CR-CIT
   - To develop a cadre of peer reviewers with appropriate skills to
   facilitate administration of CR-CIT

The training will also include a session about the *Community of Practice
(CoP)* forum developed by the UNESCO Chair and how participants could
effectively use it as an interactive hub for discussions around the CR-CIT
and peer reviews.
