Practice Notes | January 2019
Note from the Director
Looking Forward to 2019
We hope that the start of this new year has been a positive one and that there is much you are looking forward to in 2019. We are excited about many projects big and small in the year ahead.
Among those, we are thrilled to be working with Plan International in Egypt to support Syrian teachers working in the informal learning sector as they examine, analyze, and reflect to improve their teaching practice in an online collaborative learning community. This spring pilot project will be offered in Arabic and will be facilitated by a talented team of experts who are volunteering their time to this initiative. We are very grateful for this opportunity to work with Plan Egypt and our incredible volunteers and, as always, will share our learnings out loud later this year.
Our 2019 calendar is being finalized and announcements will be forthcoming about learning opportunities, online and face-to-face events, and much more soon. If there are initiatives you would like to develop alongside us, please let us know. If there are particular topics you wish to explore in a larger community of practice, drop us a line and we’ll work to facilitate that collaboration. If there are courses or webinars you might like to offer on learning.careyinstitute.org, we’d be happy to work with you to make that happen. Together we can achieve so much in 2019 and support teaching and learning across contexts and for global good. We are looking forward to the collaboration and learning in practice!
