Innovation in teacher policy and practice in education recovery Final Report of the 13th Policy Dialogue Forum Kigali, Rwanda 2-3 December 2021

Innovation is an engine of improvement in education, and critical for education to be inclusive, equitable and of  good quality. Teachers play a pivotal role in educational innovation, but to do so they need to be supported with  an environment that values willingness to take risks and depart from established ways of practice. To innovate,  teachers must also be enabled to make connections with peers, researchers, and existing and emerging  knowledge. Policy and teacher education should be oriented towards giving teachers the tools they need to drive progress in teaching and learning through innovation. The 13th Policy Dialogue Forum of the International Task  Force on Teachers for Education 2030, held on 2-3 December 2021 in Kigali, Rwanda and on-line, brought  together education stakeholders from around the world to discuss Innovation in teacher policy and practice for  educational recovery. This Report synthesises the lessons learned and recommendations generated from the  Forum on how to support innovation: in teaching and learning; in initial and in-service teacher education; and in policy-making to enable and sustain innovation.
