Learn to Communicate with Crisis-Affected Communities
infoasaid launches e-learning course on humanitarian communication
A new, free online learning course, Communication is Aid, aims to raise awareness and build basic skills for communicating effectively with crisis-affected communities, before and after an emergency breaks.
“One comment we often hear from practitioners in the field is, ‘We get the concept, we know we need to communicate better, but how do we do it more effectively?’ The e-learning course is a resource that addresses this need,” says Anita Shah, Head of infoasaid, a DfID-funded project implemented by Internews and BBC Media Action to improve how aid agencies communicate with crisis-affected communities.
The course is divided into five modules that include interactive, scenario-based challenges that let learners make key decisions about communication in situations like earthquakes, hurricanes, and post-conflict environments.
