Teacher Stories: Education in Crisis and Displacement Contexts
As part of the Teachers in Crisis Contexts Roundtable, we collected Teacher Stories (vignettes, videos, etc.) related to teacher management, teacher professional development, and/or teacher well-being in crisis and displacement contexts to ensure that teachers’ voices and experiences permeate all aspects of the event.

The Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Roundtable — co-sponsored by INEE, Oxfam*, UNESCO, the International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030, and Education International — will bring together practitioners, policymakers, education sector leaders, teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and donors working in education in emergencies (EiE) and protracted crisis settings.
The aim of the event is to share promising practices, approaches, tools, and research; troubleshoot challenges and brainstorm solutions; identify knowledge gaps specific to teachers in conflict, crisis, and displacement contexts; and mobilize committed actors around an action-oriented agenda for improving support to teachers working in these contexts.
As one of the key objectives of the roundtable is to engage teachers working in crisis and displacement contexts in decisions about practice, policy, and research, we collected Teacher Stories (vignettes, videos, etc.) related to teacher management, teacher professional development, and teacher well-being in crisis and displacement contexts to ensure that teachers’ voices and experiences permeate all aspects of the event.
