Pakistani Educator Leadership Training - Mei Lan Frame



Mei Lan Frame was the Lead Facilitator for a workshop on educational leadership for Pakistani educators pursuing Master’s degrees in education in the U.S. under the Teacher Education Master’s Scholarship Program (TEMSP), funded by USAID. This mid-program workshop was organized by World Learning and held from August 14 – 17, 2016 in Washington D.C.


The workshop was designed around the theme of educational leadership and focused on developing and strengthening participants’ roles as educational leaders, both during their time in the United States and when they return home to Pakistan. Thus it included leading participants through a cycle of inquiry and action planning, built upon data collection and the establishment of communities of learning.


In addition, the workshop provided space and guidance for participants to think contextually and analytically about an educational issue or problem they would like to work on in order to enact change in their home institutions.


Mei Lan says, This was a great opportunity to do training in the field of international education and utilize the knowledge and skills from my doctoral classes, not only in international education, but also in educational leadership, since the issue of institutional change was the basis of my workshop.



Mei Lan is currently a doctoral candidate and 4th year student at CIE, with a dissertation focus on the resiliency of the Chinese university entrance exam and the effects of current reforms. She has worked in international education for over 15 years.
