Dear Ashley Tillman - is it possible to get a line or two of feedback about why this project was not selected to go forward? We would be very grateful for the information.

Ashley Tillman There are 107 educators receiving ongoing coaching and professional development.
The innovation is to provide educator training for non-formal education projects and community schools in a way that recognizes international best practices while also contextualizing these through a participatory approach. While we have trailed this approach in other contexts, it is still a new approach in general. The initial work, in this sense, were pilots and we are now ready to roll out to scale through expanding in Lebanon and Iraq. I hope this answers your questions and thank you for your interest!

Thanks, Ashley Tillman  - for measurement, we include an initial survey with educators at the training to provide a baseline, use feedback forms with qualitative and quantitative measures after the training to get results on the training itself, and then monitor with self-assessment forms and through interviews with supervisors to get feedback on the progress made since training. We look for success in the training itself (e.g. the information was appropriate to the context, provided new information for the educators, gave them the tools they require to implement what they've learned and spread to others) and then we look for success in the implementation of the knowledge the educators have from the training (e.g. that they have felt an improvement in their classroom management, for example, and that has also been observed by the project supervisor, or other supervisor as appropriate).
