Inclusive Distance Education Toolkit

The Inclusive Distance Education Toolkit compiles resources on: inclusive education, education in emergencies, disability inclusive education, and distance education across the humanitarian-development nexus.

The resources aim to support practitioners to create and implement inclusive-distance education interventions across all phases of programming from assessment, design, implementation, and evaluation. These resources provide workable practices and guidance. 

The Inclusive Distance Education Toolkit is comprised of three units: 

  • Unit 1: From Marginalization to Inclusive Education: key foundational information to understand inclusion and define learners who are or may be excluded from learning opportunities due to marginalization. 
  • Unit 2: Making Distance Education Inclusive: key concepts of quality learning and approaches to distance education when in-person schooling is either unavailable or inaccessible. 
  • Unit 3: Professional development for inclusive distance education: key tools to support inclusive distance education practices.

Each unit includes a select compilation of resources with summary highlights and links (for all available languages). 

This toolkit is designed for education practitioners working in emergencies and crises-affected contexts. Practitioners may be local, regional, or global decision-makers, program staff, or professionals who support the design, implementation, and evaluation of programs including support to teachers.
