The KIX Regional hubs are a key knowledge exchange and knowledge brokering mechanism for the Knowledge Innovation Exchange. Through hubs, education stakeholders across the global South meet together to share experience, evidence and innovation. Many positive outcomes from their efforts are already emerging since their launch in 2020.
During the summer of 2021, KIX commissioned a series of interviews with the leaders and national representatives of the KIX Regional Hubs in order to learn more about their efforts to bridge knowledge and innovation on education with key decision makers around the world.
This culminated in four videos representing interviews with regional learning partners from each of the four hubs on topics such as: the utility of the KIX hubs for national education systems, progress in their cross-country knowledge sharing initiatives, achievements in bridging the knowledge to policy gap in international education, and ways they have adapted their approaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The title of the series is “Positioning Evidence and Innovations for Use: Insights from the KIX Regional Hubs” and each of the videos are between 3-4 minutes long. You can find the full list of videos with a brief description below. The videos were produced by Juan Pardo Correa, CommsConsult Associate.
- Utility of the KIX hubs and emerging findings
Since the KIX regional hubs were launched in March 2020, there have been many exciting emerging findings from their work with national education ministries in low- and middle-income countries. To learn about the utility of the hubs and emerging results, we spoke with KIX hub leads and national education representatives located in Latin America and the Caribbean, West and Central Africa and the Indian Ocean and East, West and southern Africa.
- Facilitating cross-country knowledge exchange and mobilization
KIX regional hubs represent 70 low and middle income countries and they function as a regional forum to facilitate cross-country knowledge exchange and mobilization, learning, synthesis, and collaboration among key national education stakeholders. To learn more about their role as a key knowledge exchange mechanism of KIX, we caught up with KIX regional hub leads located in Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and the Pacific and West and Central Africa and the Indian Ocean to discuss the activities they have been implementing to make progress against their knowledge sharing objectives.
- Bridging the knowledge to policy gap in international education
The main purpose of KIX regional hubs is to ensure that local knowledge connects to national realities and makes a difference. To learn how the KIX regional hubs are making knowledge and evidence useful for national education systems, we spoke to KIX hub leads located in Europe, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, and West and Central Africa and the Indian Ocean.
- Adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic
In an effort to understand how the KIX regional hubs are responding to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we spoke to KIX hub leads located in Latin America and the Caribbean and from East, West and southern Africa.Through their stories, we learned about the activities they were implementing to support national education representatives of low- and middle-income countries in their response to the pandemic.
