Khalifa Award for Education is intended to discover and recognize research, programmes, methodologies and advanced teaching practices, acknowledge distinguished teachers and activate the role of educational centres, institutions and companies specialised in the field of early childhood education. In addition, this new Award aims to raise awareness and focus attention on serving young childen with disabilities in early childhood education. It will promote the publication of distinguished studies, successful practices and the methodologies to improve early learning policy and practice.
The Khalifa International Award for Early Learning is now accepting applications, and the deadline is set for January 12, 2024. Seize this opportunity to create a substantial global impact and gain international recognition for your dedication.
(1) Best Research and Studies seeks to identify research on early childhood education and care that supports improvements in practice. This category includes studies that provide innovative solutions to problems, new insights into learning and teaching, and enrich the evidence base for policy and practice in ways that can lead to meaningful improvements in early learning.
Applications for the Best Research and Studies Prize be judged on four criteria: innovativeness, importance, methodological rigor, and impact. Each of the criteria will be assigned equal value in judging the applications. To assist in preparing applications, we provide four main questions (with sub-questions under each) that should be addressed in each application. Research should have been published in some form already (for example a government or nongovernmental organization report, a book or book chapter, or a journal article) but such publications should be the basis for an application not the application itself. Each application should include an abstract of no more than 300 words that includes a brief description of the research and addresses all four criteria.
Applications should be no more than 10 pages excluding the abstract, references, and an optional appendix of up to 3 pages that may include links to publications and other materials on-line.
(2) Best Programs, Curricula, Teaching Methodologies and Practices seeks to identify initiatives that aim to improve early learning in homes, informal care, or formal care and education with demonstrated improvements in quality and/or the learning and development of the young children served.
Applications for the Best Programs, Curricula, and Teaching Practices Prize will be judged on four criteria: innovativeness, importance, impact, and feasibility/sustainability. Each of the criteria will be assigned equal value in judging the applications. To assist in preparing applications, we provide four main questions (with sub-questions under each) that should be addressed in each application. Each application should include an abstract of no more than 300 words briefly describing the program and addressing each of the four criteria. All programs submitted for consideration should have been subject to an evaluation of implementation or outcomes that provides evidence of program implementation and potential or documented impacts on practice in early learning and on early learning outcomes.
All applications are to be submitted online at https://el.khaward.ae, in either Arabic or English language. To submit your application, login to your account and follow the steps. For any questions, reach out to email@example.com
