Education beyond borders: Re-imagining education in Haiti, Nepal, Egypt
Dr. Steve Sider, Faculty of Education

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 indicates: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. How is inclusive and equitable quality education fostered in fragile and developing contexts? The Educator and Leadership Institute (ELI) is a Laurier-sponsored initiative to support teacher professional development in Haiti, Nepal, Egypt and beyond. The Institute brings educators from Canada and other countries together – both through face-to-face and technology-supported methods – to foster the teaching abilities of the participants. Dr. Steve Sider will provide an overview of ELI as well as an accompanying research study which is documenting the transformative opportunity that ELI is providing.
