This report of the fifth Virtual Dialogue hosted by the UN Women Training Centre’s Community of Practice (CoP) summarizes discussions on the key challenges, opportunities, tools and methods in online and mobile training for gender equality. This discussion occurred in a context of increasing online and mobile training provision worldwide, but one which is notable for a lack of substantive research into the relative possibilities of online and mobile learning environments in the case of training for gender equality. The report highlights the value of online training as a means for expanding learning opportunities at relatively little cost worldwide. Nonetheless, there is a need to address issues of access, privilege, resistances and engagement between and among trainers and participants.
