INEE Teacher Wellbeing Guidance Note - Contextualization for Colombia

These contextualization tools consist of a methodology and reflections, as well as the resultant contextualized Domain 1 of the Guidance Note for Teacher Wellbeing in Emergency Settings for use in Soacha, Colombia.

Janaina Hirata and Alejandro Henao conducted this work in coordination with the Soacha Education Secretary. The contextualization focuses on teachers working in pre-primary through to secondary education.

Included in the Zip File package are:

  1. Contextualization Methodology
  2. Contextualization Presentation
  3. Contextualization Reflections

This contextualization project sought to better understand the challenges, opportunities, and limitations of contextualizing a global good for use in specific contexts. The resulting outputs provide important insights and lessons for INEE, and we hope these will be supportive resources for members wishing to engage in conversations and action around teacher wellbeing in their own contexts.
