The Quality Holistic Learning (QHL) Project aims to contribute to efforts to transform education in response to recent global events and shared crises that affect education, by addressing concerns around quality, equity, and inclusion through holistic learning in education in displacement contexts.
The QHL project is focused on bolstering national education systems to support inclusion, equity, and holistic learning for every child, including displaced, refugee, marginalized, and vulnerable learners.
QHL Project team including teachers is working to co-create a library of open professional learning resources (as OERs) focused on social and emotional learning, psychosocial support and wellbeing, asset based pedagogies, and differentiated instruction to support holistic learning.
The project objectives include:
- Increased teacher competency, including knowledge and skills necessary to promote quality holistic learning with students in displacement contexts and ability to demonstrate these competencies
- Increased knowledge exchange around SEL and holistic teaching and learning among teachers and other education stakeholders, including INGOs, NGOs, ministries of education, etc., in displacement contexts.
The OER Library had 2,653 unique pageviews (3,758 pageviews total) since its launch on August 1 and until December 15, 2022.
The project team and teacher fellows are working in their local communities to inform their peers and disseminate the materials, the library is also shared in many repositories and communities of practice such as within INEE, and the UNESCO Global Educator Campus, etc.
There are online course and micro-credentials that are accessible for free. The other materials including facilitation guides are open educational resources, hence they can simply be downloaded and used with the proper attribution from the library webpage: https://ceinternational1892.org/oers/
The team is also open to support with further training, localization and contextualization.
