KIX Global – Honduras

The project Adapting and Scaling Approaches to Teacher Professional Development on a scale in Honduras 2020-2022 is part of the Knowledge and Innovation Exchange- GPE-KIX initiative promoted by the Global Partnership for Education and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC).

What is it?

Digital Technology-mediated Teacher Professional Development in Honduras

The project aims to pilot the adaptation and scaling of technology-mediated Teacher Professional Development approaches in the Honduran education system (TPD@scale). The project argues that in order to improve education systems, especially in developing countries, better trained and well-trained teachers are needed to provide quality education. This pilot programme is being carried out jointly with partner organizations in Ghana and Uzbekistan.

Project objectives


To develop guidance for adapting, implementing, evaluating, and continuously improving Teacher Training on a scale (TPD@scale) models, or the components that make up such models, that are effective in different contexts and for different subgroups of teachers.


To identify and analyse the curricular, teaching, technological, organizational, economic, sociocultural, and political factors that influence the quality, inclusion, and effectiveness of the implementation of teacher training models on a scale.


To strengthen the capacities of the Ministry of Education, universities and governmental and non-governmental organizations interested in the field of education to design, develop, implement, evaluate, and continuously improve the implementation of teacher training on a scale and responsive to the diverse range of contexts and subgroups of teachers that make up the educational system in Honduras.


To promote evidence-based changes in teacher education policy and practice to improve access to quality professional development through the use of the Teacher Professional Development on a scale (TPD@scale) approach.
