Celebrating 20 Years! Highlighting Teacher Professional Development!

Kenya Connect’s Professional Learning Coordinator, Rebecca Akinyi Migwambo, wrote this piece, “Professional Learning Communities:  The Hub to Upskilling Teacher Practice” in celebration of our 20th anniversary!

Days, months, years, or even decades after graduating from teacher training institutions, teachers encounter many learning opportunities in the classrooms which are sometimes quite challenging to them but still require them to address effectively. We also tend to learn best from experience. Sharing challenges with a group of people that you share the common goal of strengthening g learning outcomes is the path forward

A Professional Learning Community (PLC) is a group of teachers who meet regularly, either physically or virtually to share their teaching experiences, collaborate on tasks to improve their classroom practice, and learn from one another about applicable teaching and learning strategies to employ in the classroom.
