Areas of Expertise
Teacher Professional Development in Developing Countries
AIR helps teachers in developing countries improve their skills and content knowledge by creating and enhancing learning opportunities for them throughout their careers. We formulate policies to support teachers’ professional development and design, implement, and evaluate programs for teacher learning. AIR’s expertise extends from teachers’ pre-service training in post-secondary institutions to in-service training opportunities, including support through cluster schools and other mechanisms.
AIR directs the ED-LINKS/Pakistan project, which is working at all levels of Pakistan’s education system to improve teacher education and professional development, student learning and the learning environment, and the capacity of the government to sustain quality education.
