Final upskilling technical report
This research project was designed and implemented between 2020 and 2022, as a response to the Covid 19 pandemic, to upskill teachers and create resilient learning systems, based on the prevailing assumption that teachers lacked pedagogical skills for high-quality, equitable, and resilient online learning and assessment. The research design consisted of the upskilling online course for teachers and a training-of-trainers for facilitators. The course was iterated 9 times with a total of 87 participants consisting of 47 public-school English language teachers (n=42) and inspectors (n=5) in Tunisia and 45 public and private-school teachers (n=25) and coaches (n=20) of diverse subjects in Lebanon. The research showed that the upskilling course increased quality, equity, and resilience in both countries. The course impact included enhanced teaching and learning, intrinsic motivation, and increased professional growth, agency, relatedness and well-being for teachers and learners.
