I had a wonderful day with a diverse group of educators representing a half dozen African nations. Very quickly it became apparent that teachers face the same challenges regardless of their locale. The biggest concerns generated by the group today are similar to those I have heard across Canada and the United States. We spoke of the lack of time, changing expectations around assessment and grading practice, and moving forward despite some colleagues that want to resist change. Great dialogue and a clear reminder that it’s a small world after all.
