INEE Reference Groups

PSS-SEL Framework Reference Group

The PSS-SEL Reference Group was established in June 2020 to provide strategic oversight and technical expertise to the work of the PSS-SEL Framework Project, a partnership project between INEE PSS-SEL Collaborative and Harvard University’s EASEL Lab. Convened around the below objectives, the Reference Group have been essential to ensuring that the project produces outputs which improve coherence and coordination in the field of PSS-SEL in EiE:

Objective 1: Provide technical guidance and high-level strategic input on drafts of the PSS-SEL framework tools and localizing processes, and the materials for piloting, including identifying new and emerging frameworks, feedback on framework coding systems, strategies for collecting data during field testing, and reviewing case studies developed through the contextualisation process.

Objective 2: Support the design and convening of two Think Tanks through the identification of participants; and participate in the Think Tanks by providing input on structure, clarity, content, and usability of the drafts of the PSS-SEL framework tools and localizing processes.

Objective 3: Support dissemination and uptake of the PSS-SEL tools and localizing processes through Reference Group Members’ networks.
