Starting the previous year and finishing in 2011, twelve experienced TEE leaders had worked together from across Asia as a peer-learning cohort. They were trained by reflecting on their own experience in their own contexts, comparing this with other people’s contexts and gaining input in adult learning principles. This strengthened and extended their own work and also created a pool of practitioner-consultants able to help national TEE programs across the region.
During this year Increase-related personnel helped run a major training conference in Central Asia, with the formation of three new national teams and the strengthening of two existing teams. Others developed initiatives in Japan and Indonesia, and training in India for TEE group leaders.
Increase contributed toward a workshop on Translation and Contextualisation for the new TEE teams in Central Asia, and also in Seoul ran a consultation on TEE Curriculum. The Increase committee also worked on a plan for the future, deciding that Increase should have ‘an Asian focus with a global voice’, and should relate to church-based training groups not just national TEE programs.

An innovative project was launched with SEAN and MAF Learning Technologies to put a TEE course on smartphones.
