The Role of Teachers in Ensuring Inclusive and Quality Education in Refugee Settings
The unprecedented number of forcibly displaced people poses a serious challenge to quality education and learning across the world. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4—seeking to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”—remains out of reach for many refugees. Teachers are a central component to providing quality education and inclusive learning environments for refugee learners, but their role and the unique challenges they face are little understood.
On Thursday, October 20, 2022, AIR hosted a webinar focused on teachers’ critical role in ensuring inclusive and quality education during forced displacement. Participants heard from a panel of experts discussing research evidence and on-the-ground experiences at the intersections of pedagogical decisions, instructional practices, teacher motivation, teacher training, and professional development.
