Sustainable and holistic teacher professional development in crisis contexts: challenges and solutions

Wed, April 17, 1:30 to 3:00pm, Hyatt Regency, Floor: Bay (Level 1), Bayview B

Group Submission Type: Refereed Round-Table Session

Proposal

Teachers are critical actors in ensuring the well-being of children and in facilitating learning, yet in many crisis contexts they work in complex classrooms with minimal support, training, materials, or compensation. While there has been a significant effort to improve the quality of teacher training in recent years, there is a need for more sustainable models of continuous professional development (PD) for teachers in emergency settings.

This roundtable will allow Education in Emergencies experts to share examples of sustainable PD practices from different countries, to explore lessons learned from their research, and to reflect on critical challenges in this area.
