GETI 2018 is a global ecumenical short term study and exposure programme in accompaniment of the World Mission Conference in Arusha, Tanzania, in March 2018, which reposes on the blended learning principle. The two month pre-event phase is both preparative and intertwined with the residential phase in Arusha. Participants and facilitators will have the opportunity to begin the journey of learning, sharing and celebrating ahead of GETI 2018 and the World Mission Conference, and thereby contribute to creating a learning environment that takes account of their own contextual experiences and the host context in relation to the core fields of study. The e-learning platform will also offer possibilities of a post-event follow up.
