October 2018Vol. 19, No. 8Evidence-Building Strategies in Child Welfare

The Children's Bureau produced a new course to help train child welfare professionals in evidence-building strategies. The course is intended to demonstrate the importance of rigorous evaluations of the programs and interventions serving families and children involved in child welfare.

The course, which can be taken as a standalone online course or as an online component integrated into a classroom setting, features interactive, self-paced learning modules; experiential learning activities; video-based teaching scenarios; pre- and posttests; knowledge checks; a navigation guide and instructor manual; and recommended resources.

The course is offered free of charge for university professors, instructors, and child welfare training academy staff.
