What do we know (so far) about remote delivery of early childhood development programs in humanitarian settings?

Date: 9 Dec 2021
Time: 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Event Type: Webinar

9 December 13:00-14:30 GMT

Remote modalities are an important but novel tool for early childhood development service providers in settings affected by conflict or crisis. As a sector, we are building the evidence base for reach, scale, impact, and equity as we design and implement these programs. 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.
