Adapting to Distance Learning in the Age of COVID-19
The University of Central Asia’s Education Improvement Programme (EIP) was quick to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic as schools closed and distance learning became a necessity. On short notice teachers had to switch from using textbooks to online platforms and social media to facilitate learning. This meant identifying, adapting, and developing teaching and learning material for online and offline use. The new material prepared by EIP was sent directly to the teachers of the sixty public schools that the University of Central Asia (UCA) supports in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan.
