Let’s Hear it From the Field—How to Continue Conducting Capacity-building Initiatives Remotely

Practitioners share examples of activities that have been put in place to continue capacity-building initiatives through remote approaches.

Due to the impact of public health measures on travel and the ability to meet face-to-face in certain phases of the IDO cycle, reorganizing capacity-building activities for continued delivery is essential.

Watch the video from War Child to explore how child protection capacity-building efforts can be continued during IDOs such as COVID-19.

In the video, a team of colleagues — Rawan, Country Office Case Management Specialist; Sara, Regional Child Protection Specialist; and Faraz, Global Child Protection Specialist — share their findings and top tips on adaptations for capacity-building continuity.

Your Task

After watching the video, share an example of remote capacity-building approaches you have been engaged with or have seen in practice.

  • What methods are you using; for example, have you tried any online learning approaches or a text message learning platform?

  • What has worked well, and what have the challenges been?

Please add your response and read and respond to at least two other learners’ responses on the discussion thread below.
