One and a half years into the COVID-19 crisis, World Teachers’ Day 2021 will focus on the support teachers need to fully contribute to the recovery process under the theme of ‘Teachers at the Heart of Education Recovery’

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed significant challenges for teachers and led to enormous pressure on teachers. The educational disruptions and school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have confirmed the crucial role of teachers in maintaining learning continuity, but also in sustaining the very dynamics of households, families and communities.  

This SEAMEO-UNESCO-TTF-IITE Experts Forum and SEAMEO WTD e-Festival: Celebrating World Teachers’ Day 2021 will celebrate the values of teachers on the World Teachers’ Day during this pandemic. In the discussion participants will learn:

  • Good practices on teacher-related policies on COVID-19 recovery
  • Current issues of teachers, and institutional strategies for resilience-building in the post-COVID world
  • Zero-investment innovative and practical ideas for successful recovery, resilience-building, and reimagining education in the post-pandemic world from the outstanding video clips shared by teachers from Southeast Asia.

Pre-registration is required here. The deadline of registration is on Sunday 3 October 2021.
