A webinar on remote early childhood development programs in humanitarian settings
Remote modalities are an important but novel tool for early childhood development service providers in settings affected by conflict or crisis.
The Early Childhood Development for Action Network (ECDAN) and The Lego foundation are launching a webinar on “What do we know (so far) about remote delivery of early childhood development programs in humanitarian settings?”. In this webinar, researchers and practitioners from BRAC, Sesame Workshop, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), NYU Global TIES for Children, and the University of Virginia will provide perspectives on the state of the evidence to date. The webinar will include a panel discussion with audience interaction encouraged on what steps implementers and researchers in the sector could take in order to improve our ability to make evidence-informed decisions.
The webinar will be held on 9 December 2021.
