Case Study

Mapping the Expertise and Skills of the Displaced Syrian Teachers in Lebanon

This case study was collected as part of Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Event Series to share compelling examples of programs and practices that positively influence improvements in teachers’ work conditions and teaching practice.  For more case studies, click here.


In this collaborative study, Education Development Trust worked with the American University of Beirut (AUB) to examine profiles of displaced Syrian teachers working in Lebanese non-formal education settings in Beirut, Beqaa, and the North region. The intention was to build a profile of the teachers and to understand the main challenges they faced. We also wanted to assess the skills and development needs of the teachers and to see what opportunities, if any, there have been with regard to their own professional development.
