A new way of science communication - Documentary Video on GRTA-funded Family Literacy Project Released

As part of the GRTA-funded family literacy, indigenous learning and sustainable development project in Ethiopia, the BDU team prepared a documentary video. The video presents the research findings of the project, and outlines the background of the UEA UNESCO Chair and the project. The BDU Information and Strategic Communications Vice President Office supported the making of this video technically. Footages were recorded on research sites, but at a different time than data collection. Besides, the interviews for the study data were different from the ones on the video.

Policy Brief Prepared

A policy brief of the GRTA-funded Family Literacy and indigenous learning project is prepared by the UEA UNESCO Chair in Adult Literacy and Learning for Social Transformation team at Bahir Dar University. As its background, the policy brief used findings from fieldwork, literature review and ideas discussed by participants of the dissemination workshop held in February 2022 in Bahir Dar on this project. It can be downloaded freely by anyone interested.
