In the spring of 2019, we partnered with Plan International to support professional learning and growth for Syrian teachers working within informal learning centers throughout Egypt

The Tawasol Project

The Tawasol Project was initiated in response to a need for sustained teacher professional development in the informal learning sector. Working with Syrian teachers from across 14 learning centers in 4 regions of Egypt, we built an online community of practice with focused instruction and discussion around well-being, social and emotional learning, inclusion, assessment, curriculum, and instruction. Participants participated in asynchronous, mobile-friendly course modules over a six-week period and attended weekly Meet Ups on Zoom facilitated by a team of volunteer facilitators, all Arabic-speaking experts in various aspects of education in emergency contexts. Learn more about this pilot project by reading the full report here.
