In response, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Research Technical Assistance Center (RTAC) worked with researchers from University of Notre Dame’s Department of Anthropology and the Pulte Institute for Global Development to better understand approaches that build refugee and host community self-sufficiency and resilience capacities.
In April 2020, USAID and Arizona State University (ASU), under the auspices of the Research Technical Assistance Center, hosted a webinar about recent developments in the use of digital strategies in education. It included presentations by Dr. Mary Jane Parmentier and Dr. Faheem Hussain, both of ASU.
