Presentations and resources from Dart journalism course now online

Published August 1, 2018

Are you interested in how the media covers issues related to early childhood? All the recordings and resources from the four-day Global Reporting Institute at Columbia Journalism School in June 2018 are now available online.

BvLF’s Esther Goh earlier blogged about her impressions of the course, which is part of the Early Childhood Reporting Initiative: Covering Trauma, Resilience and the Developing Brain.

You can, for example, watch Nadine Burke Harris talking about how childhood trauma affects health across the life course; Charles Nelson discussing the neuroscience of poverty, adversity and trauma; and Marta Rubio-Codina presenting on the economics of early childhood development.

BvLF Senior Advisor Joan Lombardi’s introduction of the new edition of Early Childhood Matters is online, as is a discussion led by BvLF’s Patrin Watanatada and Tara Eisenberg of the Gehl Institute on what makes a child-friendly city.

Expert briefing materials and suggested readings from the course are also included on the Dart website.
