Phase II

The second phase of Digital Learning for Development (DL4D), which will begin in mid-2018 thru 2021, will focus on teacher professional development at scale (TPD@Scale). There is currently a “massive teacher shortage” around the world that acts as a critical bottleneck to achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4–to ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning. TPD@Scale takes advantage of the affordances of digital technologies, informed by the principles of effective TPD, to address the tensions between equity, quality, and efficiency, and it has the potential to revolutionize professional development in the Global South.

Funding for Phase II will be provided by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and will be administered by the Foundation for Information Technology Education and Development (FIT-ED) of the Philippines.
