National and regional policy learning - Anglophone Africa: Teacher education for COVID-19 recovery
|Quand:||Mercredi 22 juin 2022 - 16:00 - Mercredi 22 juin 2022 - 18:00|
As part of its new main line of action on national and regional policy learning, The Teacher Task Force is co-organising a series of workshops for the Anglophone Africa Region with the UNESCO International Institute for Capacity Building in Africa (IICBA), in cooperation with South Africa and ADEA.
The first workshop will be held on 22 June, followed by a second workshop in October/November. Between the two workshops, additional reflection by the TTF Secretariat and the regional Steering Committee members will take place to verify assumptions and refine regional policy learning needs for the second workshop.
In particular, the workshops aim to foster exchange and discussion in support of holistic and comprehensive teacher policy development as illustrated in the Teacher Policy Development Guide (TPDG) and its nine interconnected dimensions as a framework. This workshop will focus on common policy learning needs related to teacher education and professional development including issues related to teacher training, qualifications, licensing, and its relationship to career path/ structure, working conditions and teacher standards. In addition to this, countries demonstrated an interest in the ICT dimension of teacher education including ICT skills and pedagogies for remote and distance teaching. Countries also demonstrated learning needs related to school leadership and teachers in emergencies, not only to recover from COVID-19, but also to prepare for future crises.
Country focal points and deputies, including both country and organisational members, will be invited to the Anglophone Africa regional workshop. Other key partners with regional remits will be consulted and invited to actively participate as they are familiar with regional policy learning needs.
