Ensuring effective distance learning during COVID-19 disruption: guidance for teachers
UNESCO has been working to mitigate the impact of education disruption and school closures. In response to the pandemic, UNESCO produced various distance learning resources to support teachers and policy-makers.
UNESCO supported the organization of several workshops based on the publication Ensuring effective distance learning during COVID-19 disruption: guidance for teachers following a call for proposals that attracted almost 200 entries. Learning Factory was one of the 5 successful candidates and received sponsorship from UNESCO to conduct 6 workshops across Zimbabwe.
The workshops (six in-person, and one hybrid) took place in Zimbabwe from 5 to 24 November 2021, organized by Learning Factory and Mr Addi Mavengere. These workshops reached a total of 95 participants, including 67% female teachers, 64% from rural communities, and 1% with physical impairment.
