Strengthening Education Systems in East Africa (SESEA) Research Consultancy

The Aga Khan Foundation Canada and the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (formerly CIDA) sponsor the Strengthening Education Systems in East Africa (SESEA) project  a five year primary education improvement initiative in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda).  As part of this initiative the Learning and Dialogue component of the SESEA project commissioned OISE Professors Stephen Anderson and Karen Mundy to conduct a needs assessment of current education research priorities in the region and to advise on the development of a Call for Proposals for research supported by SESEA.  The research agenda setting process included the production of several rapid reviews to synthesize research-based knowledge, issues and knowledge gaps identified in the literature concerning the following thematic areas: teaching and learning, teacher development, school management and leadership, and parent and community involvement.  The rapid reviews were undertaken with the support of several graduate students, including: Magdalena Fernandez, Daniela Bramwell, Emily Quinan and Momina Afridi.  Robyn Read designed and coordinated the rapid review methodology.

The final documents included in this series of rapid reviews focused primarily on knowledge from extensive systematic reviews of the literature related to the sub-themes of this series, supplemented by recent empirical studies of particular relevance to East Africa and other developing country contexts.  The list of key documents synthesized for this review of teaching and learning appear in the references at the end of each review.
