Research to improve the quality of teaching and learning inside Syria
Country / date: Syria, 2018
Partner: DFID Syria
In 2018, Integrity provided an in-depth review of the learning environment for Grade 2 and Grade 3 children in areas of Syria not controlled by the Government of Syria.
The research study examined teacher practice and behaviour, the nature of the learning environment, and their effects on child learning and wellbeing. It was aimed at donors, policy makers, researchers and implementers working on education in crises and conflicts, particularly those with an interest in Syria.
The study sought to provide informed and policy relevant insights on suggested investments in child learning, namely by improving the nature of their learning environments, and in particular, the quality of teaching. The study represented the first wide-scale analysis since the start of the Syrian conflict of how teacher practice and learning spaces are influencing child learning and wellbeing.
