The Society for Research in Child Development and organizers, Dr. Kofi Marfo from the University of South Florida and Dr. Alan Pence from the University of Victoria are pleased to announce a unique one day Public Symposium on 'Strengthening Africa's contributions to child development research'.

The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) was established in 1933 by the U.S. National Research Council of the National Academies of Science. Organizers received funding from SRCD to bring together scholars from diverse backgrounds to explore ways to support child development research in Africa and strengthen the continent's contributions to the global knowledge base on child development.

The Symposium is also supported by the Investigating Quality (IQ) project based at the University of Victoria and led by Drs. Alan Pence and Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw. The IQ project has undertaken a series of Symposia designed to broaden, deepen and critically examine discourses regarding early childhood care, education and development.

The symposium will feature presenters from around the world including Turkey, USA, Kenya, Mexico, Cameroon and Zambia.

There is no fee to participate in the symposium.
