Training Catalog 2019 1 I am pleased to present the catalog of courses which will be delivered during 2019 through our network of regional training centers and programs, as well as at IMF Headquarters and online. This catalog offers our core audience—IMF member government officials—the menu of quality, policy-oriented, hands-on courses that they have come to expect from the IMF Institute . In addition, we also make available our online curriculum to the general public by offering Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) . Delivered by experts from across the IMF, our courses cover a variety of subjects with the aim of building stronger institutions and skills for better macroeconomic policy making . For over five decades the IMF Institute has been delivering practical training in multiple languages on core macroeconomic and financial topics to support the IMF’s surveillance and lending activities . To better serve the needs of member countries, we recently revised our curriculum, added specific learning objectives for sustained evaluation, and introduced new delivery modes . The IMF Institute program facilitates sharing of policy experiences through peer-to-peer learning and offers modular courses with a progression through basic, intermediate, and more specialized courses . It uses active learning methods and relies on workshops and case studies tailored to regions to serve members better . Through regular and structured evaluations which incorporate the internationally accepted criteria of relevance, effectiveness, impact, efficiency, and sustainability, we take a critical look at our curriculum and its impact . This approach allows us to continuously improve our courses and respond to the needs of our audience .
