COL's Teacher Futures programme aims at supporting virtual mobility and interaction among teachers, teacher educators and the programme team through both local and international Communities of Practice.
Being a good teacher means being a good learner, especially when new initiatives, such as the competency-based curriculum (CBC) in Kenya, call for new teaching approaches. Traditional forms of continuing professional development (CPD), when teachers go away from school to attend courses, have been shown to have limited impact.
The Toolkit provides the guidance and supporting resources for a school-based programme of around 12–15 weeks’ duration. International evidence suggests that for in-service education to make a difference, it ought to take around 60–70 hours in a fairly constrained time period.
This Guidelines and Standards resource package has been put together as a recommendation for integration of micro-learning resources into the TeacherFutures cross-national teacher communities of practice.
