COVID-19 Interviews

With the Covid Interviews, NISSEM has embarked on a series of interviews with actors from government and civil society, in order to understand better the practicalities and implications of national education responses to the Covid-19 pandemic, with a focus on countries in the global south. All interviews are reproduced as transcripts and aim to reflect the voices of the interviewees. We expect to continue with this program of interviews for some months to come, as systems emerging from the crisis rethink the content and practice of teaching and learning.
