From Blaming to Reflecting: An Evaluation of the Quality Education Project (QEP) in Zimbabwe and Zambia

The Quality Education Project targets teachers in pre-service and in-service teacher training and helps them analysing their own class-room behaviour. The QEP is learner-centred. It is about problem-solving and individual and collective feedback for improving teaching. The methodology used to reach this aim is educational action research. This means that teachers are trained in studying their own class-room, looking at the problems that exist, coming up with a solution to the problem, trying this solution out in practice and evaluate the outcome of the action. In some schools in Zambia all teachers in a school were at one point QEP-trained while in Zimbabwe only a few teachers in some schools were QEP-trained.
