Overview of NGO-University partnership for education in emergencies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The partnership between the International Rescue Committee and the University of Nairobi entails three essential sets of activities—building capacity, developing curriculum and expanding partnerships. A brief review of these core activities will be presented as well as the history and evolution of the project to date.

The capacity building activities related to this project ultimately include students, academics and practitioners studying, conducting research and working in the field of education in emergencies in Kenya and the greater East Africa region. Before these goals can be met the faculty members at the University of Nairobi, who are also relatively new to the field of Education in Emergencies, must also expand their own knowledge base and skills.

In conjunction with the capacity building activities, the participating organizations have worked to develop a graduate-level curriculum that fulfills the University’s requirements for a Master of Education degree and that includes a comprehensive teaching guide that faculty members can utilize for their ongoing professional development and instructional needs.

To ensure the long-term success and sustainability of this new academic program, the IRC and the University of Nairobi are also working to expand the partnership to include individuals and organizations that can support the teaching and learning processes as well as the financial, organizational and human resources needs as the program continues to evolve.
