Essentials for Education in Crisis & Conflict
This course is the outgrowth of a growing understanding that the process of designing, implementing, and evaluating education programs in areas affected by crisis and conflict requires flexibility and adaptation to complex and changing environments. This course was designed by the USAID Education in Crisis and Conflict Network (USAID ECCN) with funding from USAID.
This 5-day course offers USAID education staff the opportunity to gain and apply knowledge and skills to better design, procure, manage and evaluate education programs for the unique challenges of conflictand crisis-affected contexts — including situations of high levels of violence, lawlessness and high disaster risk. The course’s case studies will focus solely on the Honduran and Central American context.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify the unique characteristics and challenges of education programs in conflict and crisis contexts in Central America generally and Honduras specifically.
- Manage, procure and oversee a Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA).
- Adapt principles of conflict sensitivity to education program design and management to the Central American context (e.g. gang activity, risk of violence, natural disasters), and other contexts.
- Assess education program design using evidence-based theories of change for key challenges of education in Central America, including equity, safety, social-emotional learning and local institutional capacity building.
- Develop indicators, feedback loops and monitoring and evaluation plans for projects and activities using a Collaboration, Learning and Adaptation framework (CLA).
