As the technical assistance partner in the RCC Programme, TRC provided support to the Karakorum International University in setting up their ECE learning resource centre, in January 2009. Initially it was decided that members of TRC’s training and development team will work with KIU faculty to help them. However, due to adverse weather conditions and non-availability of flights to Gilgit, the plan did not materialise. Technology came to the rescue … KIU shared the list of learning resources they were aiming to procure for their ECE Centre, and we provided detailed feedback on all the resources, suggesting developmentally and culturally appropriate and  more eco – friendly, alternatives. Possible activities and ways in which the materials could be used were also suggested.
