Learning Networks concept

  1. 1. Learning Networks Day… AIESEC AIESEC is the international platform for young people to discover and develop their potential for a positive impact in society. It involves creating an integrated leadership development experience composed of leadership opportunities, internship opportunities and a global learning environment. In Uganda we are in Makerere University, Makerere University Business School and Uganda Christian University. We tackle issues and initiatives that affect the society as a whole and provide impactful experience both to our members and the society as well. Concept of Learning Networks day AIESEC Makerere University Business School is organizing a Learning Networks day. A learning network is a discussion forum that gives people the opportunity of expressing their thoughts and ideas on an issue that is affecting their society as a whole, and the ways needed to address it. It is normally carried out before projects and during international conferences There are four issues that AIESEC Uganda would like to engage the whole students community in addressing. These issues are based on the following projects that we will implement as an organization.

The flow of the day Companies will be invited on that day and they will bring best case examples of the various issues that they tackle and address in their organizations. They will give various presentations according to the various initiatives that they will be assigned to talk about. Thereafter there will be questions and answers, as regards to the different presentations. Four groups will then be created and the students will engage the companies in small discussions and together they will get to share a deeper insight of the issues under each initiative. There will then be presentations on the various issues from the different groups. With thanks
