Promising practices for Supporting Wellbeing and Learning During Covid-19
Organized by the USAID Education in Crisis and Conflict Network (ECCN), this webinar will serve as a moment for ECCN members to pause and reflect on our ongoing COVID-19 recovery efforts. This webinar is the first in a USAID Leading Through Learning Global Platform series highlighting promising education practices from across the world and how they are making an impact. Additionally, as a developmental learning opportunity, participants will engage in joint reflection, sharing and learning about resilience through COVID-19 response and recovery, what we can take forward to future response, and the role evidence plays in this.
This webinar will highlight three responses to COVID-19 that center around psychosocial support (PSS), social emotional learning (SEL), and protection interventions working to mitigate learning loss and/or sustain learning outcomes during the pandemic. Highlighted interventions include: Amal Alliance’s “Colors of Kindness,” which is a play-based education technology SEL intervention in Bangladesh; Population Council’s “Track, Trace, Talk and reTurn” intervention with the Ministry of Education in Kenya; and STiR’s “teacher professional development” radio-based intervention in Uganda. The three interventions share the goal of ensuring the psychosocial wellbeing of learners and/or teachers to either remain in, or return to, learning during COVID-19. The webinar will include presentations by project leads of three highlighted promising practices, and small group discussion on key themes, focusing on resilience and evidence in COVID-19 response.
This online event will be conducted over Zoom in English with Spanish and French interpretation. If you have any questions about the accessibility of this event or would like to request a reasonable accommodation, please contact [email protected] by August 23, 2022.
