Improving teaching practices in Africa

Nacuzon Sall (University of Dakar) and Marguerite Altet (University of Nantes) have led a team of researchers in Burkina Faso to find out what works and what doesn't in the classroom. Their research aims to help teachers adjust their teaching practices for more efficient learning results. The research program, named OPERA, has been funded by a grant from the Global Partnership for Education.
