Title
Teacher professional development in sub-Saharan Africa: Equity and scale [preprint]
Abstract
This chapter synthesises approaches to teacher professional development based on the evidence provided by three key reviews. A comprehensive and pragmatic set of eight principles for teacher professional development in sub-Saharan Africa is presented, including recommendations for: effective teaching and learning practices that facilitate a focus on student learning; professional status and motivation of teachers; design and conduct of professional development programmes; and the value of appropriate Open Educational Resources / Practices and the wise use of educational technology, as well as considerations for policy formulation. We argue that these features can be realised through holistic school-based peer-facilitated TPD models which is not only not only educationally effective, but also cost-effective and scalable. Such models have the potential to radically increase equitable participation in education.
