Training of Secondary Teachers in Displacement-affected Communities in the IGAD Region Module

Welcome to the Pedagogy Module!

In the spirit of collaboration and coordination, this module was developed based on contributions from the National Teaching Training Colleges (NTTCs) within Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda. NTTCs in all three countries contributed substantial teacher training material, much of which is directly reflected throughout the content and methodology. Thanks are extended to all contributing trainers, pedagogies and curriculum developers.

The recent Education Assessment in the IGAD region (undertaken in Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda) revealed multiple challenges for secondary school teachers in ensuring quality education for all learners. However, the exercise also illuminated the great resilience, determination, courage and creativity of many teachers across the schools – in both refugee and host communities. This module aims to harness these attributes while introducing or deepening understanding of important pedagogical concepts, skills and practice.

The module explores a range of important pedagogical themes, particularly those considered essential for the foundations of quality teaching and learning. It explores (and enables teachers to practice) what is essential to establish a safe and positive ethos for learning and both the practical and social steps to get there. It explores further the important steps for planning and developing a lesson and all associated components to make learning more effective, such as good questioning techniques.

These approaches aim to foster confidence and self-efficacy in students. This is critical in the refugee context where quality education may not have been so consistent or assured. As this component of the module is limited to six days it does not cover every aspect of pedagogy. However, it does aim to equip teachers with the most essential aspects to help improve their practice and teach more effectively and confidently.
