Meet-up in Amman, Jordan

From July 23 – 27, education practitioners from across the Middle East came together in Amman, Jordan for an INEE and No-Lost-Generation “Teachers in Crisis Contexts Introduction, Contextualization, and Implementation” Training of Trainers. A diverse group of practitioners, policy-makers, academics, and teacher trainers attended the 5-day ToT at the Norwegian Refugee Council Regional Office to learn about, practice, share experiences, and contextualize the INEE Training for Primary School Teachers in Crisis Contexts training pack for the teachers they work with in the Middle East.


Kefah Barham, Ed.D. – Assistant Professor at An-Najah National University and Paul Frisoli, Ed.D. – Senior Technical Advisor at the International Rescue Committee were among the attendees at the ToT. Kefah shared a wide range of experiences related to work that she does with teachers in Palestine and plans to use the pack in her own professional work with teachers.  Paul was one of two co-facilitators of the ToT, sharing experiences using the parts of the pack in Iraq and Lebanon.  Paul plans to work more in-depth with IRC and INEE colleagues in the region to roll the pack out for various types of educators.  Both Kefah and Paul took a quick selfie to celebrate the completion of the ToT and will keep in touch to share lessons learned on the training pack roll-out.
