Strengthening teachers’ and school principals’ capacity for scaling innovation from the bottom up in the education system in the Caribbean
This project aims to enhance the capacity of teachers, principals, and education administrators in Haiti and St. Lucia’s education systems to identify and understand concrete educational challenges, devise and test solutions, and share results with peers and decision-makers. Those elements will enable an innovation culture from the bottom up within the education systems that is aligned with the threefold goal of addressing social needs, improving key stakeholders' capacities, and using scarce resources efficiently.
Specific proven methodologies focused on training key actors to introduce innovations from the bottom up will be tested and adapted to the Caribbean context. The project combines qualitative and quantitative methods with participatory components throughout its different phases. It will also support and inform ongoing national policy reforms in St. Lucia and Haiti, as well as regional initiatives, focusing on conditions for effective scalability of innovations and capacity building interventions.
This project is part of a Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange call for proposals in Latin America and the Caribbean: Generating and mobilizing innovative knowledge for regional education challenges.
