This project adopts a blended learning approach offering professional development programme for Lebanese and Syrian educators working with refugees from Syrian and Lebanese children from marginalized backgrounds. 

The main aim of the project is to create a space to produce and exchange knowledge that allows educators working and living in a complex crisis is Lebanon to enhance their connections professionally and increase their chance for better employment in the future. 

This programme combines learning via MOOCs and learning face-to-face. The professional development aims at supporting educators to improve the quality of learning offered to Syrian refugees as well as Lebanese young people who are increasingly struggling with access to quality education and safe learning environments. 

The face-to-face workshop targets 12 teachers in Beirut in two-day workshop and 12 teachers in Bekaa in a three-day workshop. 

The online workshop includes a MOOC entitled ‘Towards Better Education: Lessons Learnt from COVID-19’ which was co-created by CLS in 2021 and focuses on four main themes:

  1. Education Technology and interactive pedagogy
  2. Assessment for better learning
  3. Inclusive Education
