18 November 4pm GMT

INEE’s Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Collaborative, in partnership with the LEGO Foundation, Education International, Oxfam, UNESCO, 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.

This webinar is the second in a series to contribute to a growing evidence base on how to improve the ways that we support teachers through prioritizing their professional development. Teacher professional development 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 Grace, an internally displaced educator working in Nigeria explained, “These learners are in non-formal education. They are from different places, and it is not easy for me to relate with them….So we’re just managing it, but if we get another training, at least it will helps us to know how to stay with them.”

In this webinar, teachers and Education in Emergencies actors working in a variety of contexts will share their reflections on the challenges and opportunities of supporting teacher professional development in crisis contexts. Through a moderated discussion, these actors will come together to share good practice, lessons learned, and opportunities for change to better support the professional development of teachers doing extraordinary work amidst extraordinarily challenging settings.
