Save the Children in collaboration with INEE, Plan International and other partners are pleased to announce the launch of the Education in Emergencies (EiE) online course on Kaya.
This free, self-directed online course is primarily designed to help education in emergencies (EiE) and education practitioners to improve their knowledge of EiE in general or in specific EiE topics and areas, in line with the six modules/35 units offered. It may also serve as a useful resource for those working in other areas but wanting to improve their understanding of EiE by diving into this intermediate-level content.
“I am really enjoying the online course on Education in Emergencies on Kaya. I find the course highly relevant and useful for development professionals involved in the response to the education crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks Humanitarian Leadership Academy for this great platform!” – Joan, Education technical advisor
The EiE online course:
- explicitly links to the INEE Competency Framework and can be used to help address many of the competencies presented in the Framework;
- can be taken as individual units, individual modules, as a complete standalone course or, for eligible participants, as a pathway to the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) accredited by the University of Geneva;
- is HPass digitally badged, earned by completing the unit content and an assessment at the end.
Module 1, comprising 20 hours of self-directed learning, is available now on Kaya, and currently being translated into Arabic, French and Spanish for release in January 2021. Modules 2-6 (comprising a further 180 hours) are currently under construction and due for release between now and March 2021. They will also be translated as they are released.
Module 1 starts by ensuring familiarity with the concepts and frameworks which underpin the rationale for EiE – Humanitarianism, Sustainable Development Goal 4 and UN Child Rights Convention. Module 1 then looks at the overarching aims of EiE and the types of interventions which can contribute to their realisation, before exploring the concept of quality EiE – its different components and ways of framing and guiding it. Finally the way EiE relates to the humanitarian-development nexus is considered, including how this links to systemic resilience.
