    • Welcome

      Welcome to 'Active teaching and learning for Africa': Getting started.

      This enhanced SPRINT school-based continuing professional development (SBCPD) programme is designed to support active teaching and learning in line with the Zambian revised school curriculum. SPRINT stands for ‘Schools Program of In-service Training for the Term’. The expectation in Zambia is that all teachers take part in SBCPD. Schools are expected to make a plan for regular teacher group meetings (TGMs) in which issues around teaching and learning are discussed.  This collection provides resources to support this process. 

      While the classroom examples and videos contained in this programme are taken from Zambian classrooms,  the ideas and examples are relevant more widely to teachers and those who support teachers, who aspire to be more learner-centred in their approach to teaching, and can be adapted for your own context. The courses draw on the TESSA OER (www.tessafrica.net).

      This SBCPD programme has been developed in Zambia by the Ministry of General Education, with the input of 600 teachers and District Officials from Central Province. It is supported by The Open University (UK) and World Vision Zambia, funded by The Scottish Government. The content is made available under the Open Government Licence v3.0 http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/

      In ’Getting started’ you will be introduced to the key elements of the enhanced SPRINT school-based continuing professional development (SBCPD) programme. There are two resources – the general Getting started guide, applicable to all course participants, and the Facilitator Guide, applicable to those responsible for facilitating Teacher Group Meetings. There is also a selection of documents including an Implementation Guide to help you implement SBCPD in your own setting.
