Good Practices for Community Media

The Commonwealth of Learning enables groups to work together by identifying good practices for Media for Learning. Our activities help community groups, trainers and grassroots community stakeholders identify and analyse successful / promising formats & critical success factors; and encouraging thinking about processes for developing Effective Learning Programs; and to generate awareness of Program Outcomes (over 3-5 years)

Good Practices are proven and effective activities, for Community Media practitioners to use in their projects and organizations. They can be used "as is", or modified and adapted to reflect local conditions, context(s) and culture(s). Please see various Good Practices in the table below. Feel free to add your own, and share them with our Community.
