WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY 2021 in the Arab Region - Teachers at the Heart of Education Recovery
|When:||Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 12:00 - Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 13:30|
This year’s international celebration of the World Teachers’ Day (WTD) focuses on teachers contributions in recovery processes following especially the Covid-19 crisis and its long lasting effects on education and learning in countries the world over.
Capitalizing on the WTD 2020 celebration in the Arab Region (8 October 2020) organized by the International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030 (TTF) and UNESCO Office in Beirut, that focused on teacher leadership, this year’s WTD celebration will tackle more specifically what changed (and what needs to change) with regard to teacher continuous professional development. Along with other measures, such as those related to salaries, working conditions and social protection, quality continuous professional development is of utmost importance in preparing and supporting teachers to be at the heart of education recovery.
The webinar guest speakers and participants are invited to focus their intervention around several questions, as follows:
How did the Covid-19 crisis impact teachers in the Arab Region?
What (new) needs and challenges in terms of teacher professional development have occurred/been identified?
What are some examples of successful/effective/innovative responses in terms of teacher professional development?
What lessons and policy recommendations can be drawn to date.
