Capturing the dynamics of Change: Teachers’ voices from the classrooms

EIA is going to hear more from teachers in a mega event called the Teachers’ Voices Conference during mid-2016. Teachers have all along been at the centre of EIA and have managed to implement the ‘EIA approach’ to create a learner centred English classroom where teachers talk less and yet learners learn more!

This event will enable teachers to carry out a small piece of research into their own work - in classrooms, with children, with colleagues and their Head Teachers – to see what works and what needs to be done differently and why. Moreover, they will be able to share their experience with a wider community of professionals. To be able to do this each of them will be supported by a mentor; the mentors are a group of advanced teachers selected from different divisions, supported by the EIA team.


The preparation for this mega event started with an orientation workshop for the forty five mentors held on 13th and 14th December in CAMPE (Campaign for Popular Education) in Dhaka. The journey of these mentors will culminate in four different conferences in four regions all over the country. Each region consists of two divisions: Dhaka & Mymensingh, Rajshahi & Rangpur, Chittagong & Sylhet and Barisal & Khulna. 

The Conference is significant in many ways. It will help EIA teachers to take ownership of their learning, to articulate it in their own words and in sustaining the learning even after the life of the project.
