In 2019 and 2020, Lebanon faced a series of economic, sanitary, social and political crises. In addition, the move to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic created a significant challenge given the country’s infrastructure and technological obstacles.

With support from Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Lebanon’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education provided public school teachers and students with digital learning resources, and the training they needed to adapt.

Diana Amin is a math, physics and chemistry teacher at the Intermediary Public School of Jbeil. She had very little preparation to teach online, but thanks to the Online Learning and Assessment Pedagogies course she and her colleagues learned ways to make the most of online schooling.
