Online Conference Event: Online Education to Support Parents during the COVID-19 Pandemic
The past year has been marked by numerous changes, especially in the field of education, which had to adapt to challenging new circumstances. Pregnant families were not able to attend traditional, live antenatal courses and in response, Roda – Parents in Action developed an e-course for pregnant families with the support of UNICEF Office in Croatia in collaboration with the World Bank. Within a few months the course became an e-learning platform and grew to include three stand-alone courses. Families in Croatia have recognised the value and quality of the courses and by the end of 2020, one in every five pregnant families in Croatia had attended at least one of Roda’s e-courses. The lessons learned will be presented at our online conference.
Please join us at the free, online conference
organised by Roda and UNICEF Office in Croatia
intended for health and other professionals who provide antenatal courses
on Tuesday, 23 February at 11h (CET), on Zoom.
The conference presentations will be held by team members who were involved in the processes of designing, preparing and promoting antenatal e-courses. They will discuss the methods, tools and experiences used to create the e-courses and the innovative ways in which the e-courses were used, after which there will be time for questions.
- The number of participants is limited, so ensure that you register using this link by Monday, 22 February 2021 at 12h (CET).
