Dear ICET Family members, 

Happy World Teachers Day!!

TTF Newsletter 
We are happy to share with you  the Teacher Task Force World Teachers Day Newsletter 


Regional Virtual Meetings 
The Teacher Task Force with member organizations and partners is organizing a series of Regional Virtual Meetings to coincide with the World Teachers Day celebration.
 These will explore the topic of teacher leadership and its key role in developing effective solutions to address challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic and building back resilient education systems (see the concept note)

In particular, the regional meetings will provide a forum to:

  1. Share examples of leadership that emerged, were implemented or are planned during different phases of the pandemic including the transition to remote teaching and the return to school;
  2. Identify the different systemic or policy level enabling factors that were conducive to foster effective leadership amongst school leaders and teachers at the classroom-, school- and community-levels;
  3. Identify challenges that need to be addressed to ensure leadership can be enhanced and teachers can take the lead on different dimensions of teaching and learning;
  4. Discuss different tools available to support teacher leadership, including the new TTF Toolkit for Reopening Schools, and TTF Knowledge Platform.
