UCD Volunteers Overseas

UCDVO/AMRI Learning Lab

 UCDVO Volunteer and Returned Missionary participating in the Skills Exchange, UCD, March, 2017

UCDVO in partnership with the Association of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland (AMRI)  facilitate a number of IT Learning Lab workshops for returned missionaries. Since 2016, UCDVO volunteers who are preparing for their computer training projects in Tanzania have tutored returned missionaries in IT skills. The opportunity for mutual learning and exchange of skills and stories of living and working overseas was a really valuable and interesting one.

Feedback from Tutors:

“I really enjoyed my time teaching and learned a lot about the person’s life. I have a greater appreciation for the gap in technology knowledge and take satisfaction that I was able to help bridge that gap.”

“I have improved my communication skills and also my own computer skills as we learned many things together!”
