Teacher Management in Crisis Contexts: Sharing good practice, lessons learned and opportunities for change

INEE’s Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Collaborative, in partnership with the LEGO FoundationEducation InternationalOxfamUNESCO, and the International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030, have come together to support a Call to Action to transform sector-wide support to teachers in crisis contexts.

Part of this work is to share examples of promising approaches and persistent challenges across policy, practice, and research related to four thematic areas: teacher well-being, teacher management, teacher professional development, and school leadership and governance.

(After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the web event.)

N.B. This web event will be conducted in English with closed captioning in English.

This webinar is the third in a series to contribute to a growing evidence base on how to improve the ways that we support teachers through prioritizing teacher management policies and practices (i.e., recruitment, deployment, compensation, etc.). Teacher management is key to providing quality, equitable education and improving the classroom climate for all students so children and youth are better able to learn. As our colleague Francis, a Ugandan teacher explained, “I would like to see the teachers’ working conditions improve soon. Right now there are too few teachers for the many pupils. We lack teaching resources and proper working conditions.”

In this webinar, teachers and Education in Emergencies actors working in Myanmar, East Africa, and the Middle East will share their reflections on the challenges and opportunities of teacher management policies and practices in crisis contexts. Through a moderated discussion, these actors will come together to share good practice, lessons learned, and opportunities for change to improve teacher management for teachers doing extraordinary work amidst extraordinarily challenging settings.

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.

  • What (new) needs and challenges in terms of teacher professional development have occurred/been identified?
