Description: The purpose of the Teacher Excellence Initiative is to improve the quality and relevance of teacher preparation in Egyptian public universities so that current and future primary school teachers have enhanced skills to increase student learning and advance the Ministry of Education and Technical Education’s (MOETE) reform. The activity will achieve this purpose through the following three results:Pre-service teachers in undergraduate programs at Faculties of Education have the skills and knowledge to apply practice-based, experiential teaching methods in the classroom.In-service teachers in postgraduate programs at Faculties of Education apply practice-based, experiential teaching methods in the classroom.The Ministry of Education and Technical Education (MOETE), the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR), and the Supreme Council of Universities demonstrate improved capacity to jointly plan, manage, and adapt teacher education.Each result will be achieved in collaboration with the MOETE, MOHESR, and other Government of Egypt (GOE) stakeholders to advance the MOETE’s teacher professional development strategy. Two cross-cutting themes will be integrated into all three results: increasing linkages between U.S. and Egyptian universities and utilizing technology to enhance teaching and learning in Faculties of Education.
