Transform.Ed Briefing #24
Making Professional Learning Communities better, exploring global citizenship, and a tint of art for your teaching practices, just for you!
From our last week’s poll results, we discovered that 50% of educators attributed excessive workload to be the most significant cause of teachers’ stress and unhappiness, while the other half felt that the teachers are grossly underpaid.
Both issues deserve attention and action from everyone including policymakers, institutions, and leaders. Optimizing workload can not only enhance work-life balance and job satisfaction but also support the efforts of educators to shape a truly healthier society.
As a stress-buster recommended by UNICEF, we hope you are taking good care of yourself and staying socially connected. The Global Citizenship Foundation’s Educational Leadership Community is an interesting opportunity to co-create a dedicated community to drive narratives around the future of education and to socialize with educators all around the globe.
With this carefully curated edition of Transform.Ed Briefing, you can explore featured articles, stay informed about the latest education policies, participate in our weekly poll, discover global events, indulge in a recommended movie, enhance your skills with professional development opportunities, enrich your knowledge with our book recommendations and stay on top of finding exciting job opportunities!
