TIDE project enriched distance learning in Myanmar by building the capacity of Higher Education staff and students, enhancing programmes of study, and strengthening systems that support Higher Educational Institutions (HEI) in Myanmar. TIDE was part of the UK-Aid-funded Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education Innovation and Reform (SPHEIR) programme(www.spheir.org.uk). SPHEIR is managed on behalf of FCDO by a consortium led by the British Council that includes PwC and Universities UK International. The TIDE project closed in May 2021. 

This collection provides a compilation of key materials and resources produced by the project from its launch in 2018 and supports the sustainability of TIDE outcomes. TIDE reached all 40 Arts and Science Universities and Colleges in Myanmar, by engaging with academic staff in disciplines relevant to Education for Environment and Sustainable Development (EfESD), as well as ICT, library and support staff. The project typically involved a two-year programme of residential schools, face to face seminars, online courses and webinars, although Covid-19 restrictions meant most activities transferred online in the later stages of the project. Over 500 HEI staff in Myanmar directly engaged with TIDE, and more benefited through cascade events. TIDE operated a holistic model that delivered practical solutions for system-wide enhancement of Distance Education focused on strengthening the capacity of people, programmes and systems.
