ECCN and the INEE Technology and Education in Crises Task Team (TECTT) invite you to a webcast featuring innovative ways to use Information Communication Technology (ICT) in monitoring and evaluation of education programming for refugee populations. The webcast will feature an evaluation conducted in Dadaab, Kenya, of youth training that uses auto-photography methods and key lessons learned from the development and implementation of a mobile-based data collection tool and analysis dashboard created by the Vodafone Foundation Instant Network Schools project in collaboration with UNHCR.
Special thanks to INEE Tech Task team members and ECCN Steering Group member Shezleen Vellani from Concern Worldwide for their partnership in organizing this webcast.
Have you faced challenges in data collection efforts while evaluating activities in conflict or crisis zones? Do you wonder what the best research design is, given the constraints you’re facing? Have you considered how to adapt findings for stakeholders with differing agendas?
Join us in a conversation about navigating challenges in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) when working in crisis and conflict zones. This webcast is part of an ongoing series of events ECCN is hosting about M&E strategies and practices when working with education programs in crisis and conflict settings (EiCC). The webcast will consider issues around assessment development and adaptation, enumerator recruitment and supervision, data collection, and funders’ measurement expectations in unstable environments. Panelists, featuring development practitioners from Chemonics, School-to-School International, Creative Associates, and USAID, will share lessons learned from reporting on a national EGRA (Afghanistan’s first) and other stories and lessons from crisis and conflict zones, including experiences shared by attendees. ECCN will also communicate updates on a new guidance tool for data quality considerations and indicator development efforts aimed at improving equity in EiCC programming.
What Global Education Can Learn from Public Health: Strengthening a Global Ecosystem to Achieve Quality Education for All
"What Global Education Can Learn from Public Health: Strengthening a Global Ecosystem to Achieve Quality Education for All", will take place on Monday, September 18, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. The event, co-hosted by the Center for Global Education at Asia Society (CGE), Teach For All, Results for Development, the Center for Universal Education (CUE) at Brookings, and Credit Suisse, will take place at Asia Society's New York headquarters at 725 Park Avenue.
As we mark the two years since the announcement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, this event aims to apply lessons learned from the global health sector to the challenge of providing a quality education for all by 2030. The global health sector has successfully demonstrated that local stakeholders can benefit immensely from a stronger and better coordinated set of global actors, bringing together a world of knowledge, experience, and deep expertise for local benefit. Reflection on current investments in global education reveals that there is an opportunity and a critical need to increase attention to these issues.
The event will feature an overview of key lessons from global health lead by Results for Development, updates from the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) and the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) on findings from an ongoing mapping and analysis of the global education ecosystem, and a panel discussion on the implication of these findings and lessons for the education sector featuring Wendy Kopp, founder of Teach For All and other leaders in education.
We'd be delighted to have you join us for the discussion! Please RSVP here.
