We invite educators working in refugee resettlement contexts across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and elsewhere to join us this summer for a rich learning opportunity within a vibrant community of practice.
Between January 2021 and June 2022, the Center for Learning in Practice will co-develop-with local refugee educators, NGO, government ministry, and other partners-Open Education Resource (OER) teacher professional learning courses, toolkits, and assessments in 3 languages: English, Arabic, and French. These materials will support the continuous professional development of primary and secondary school educators in refugee and displacement contexts, including national schools, camp settings, and informal learning centers with a focus on educators working with students between the ages of 9-15.
