COVID-19 Impact Assessment Study, EdTech Hub
The COVID-19 Impact Assessment Study was a research study, implemented in partnership with EdTech Hub, to establish a better understanding of the impact of the shift to Emergency Remote Teaching & Learning in Colleges of Education following the COVID-19 outbreak and school closure in March 2020.
As a response to the COVID-19 outbreak and closure of schools, T-TEL worked with the 5 public teaching universities and the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) to create an online B.Ed. curriculum resources hub for both student teachers and tutors, containing all course materials for Year 1 and Year 2. T-TEL also worked with GTEC to establish a CoE e-Learning Fund to improve the Wi-Fi connectivity in 36 CoEs. Whilst access rates across the teacher education system were high due to these interventions, the COVID-19 Impact Assessment Study sought to establish the impact of the measures put in place to improve the quality of teaching and learning during the COVID-19 outbreak and make recommendations for the future.
