Iqbal Open University will host a four days research workshop of GPE-KIX funded project, led by Foundation for Information Technology Education and Development (FIT-ED). The consortium involves Allama Iqbal Open University (Pakistan), Kathmandu University (Nepal) and the Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (Afghanistan). The project aims to develop, test and scale a capacity strengthening methodology -known as Networked Improved Community (NIC)- for school principals to become agents for change in their schools and school districts in Pakistan, Nepal and Afghanistan. The project focuses on empowering and preparing school heads to identify barriers to equity and inclusion, enact data-driven solutions and involve teachers and school communities to adapt pedagogy and improve access and learning of girls, children with disabilities and other marginalized learners. The project will use mixed methods to co-create an open course, generate and collect data, produce evidence and refine the approach to inform policy and practice in the three countries and the region at large.
