This module was designed as part of The Connected Learning for STEM Project (CL4STEM It aims to build capacities of secondary school teachers in Science and Mathematics to foster higher-order thinking with inclusion and equity. CL4STEM is a South-South collaboration among higher educational institutions to adapt and pilot the CLIx model of TPD developed and implemented in India, ( in Tanzania, Nigeria, and Bhutan. CL4STEM modules for teacher professional development are Open Educational Resources and involve teachers in short courses and online communities of practice to enrich classroom practice with Pedagogical Content Knowledge, and understanding of Inclusion.

The knowledge generated from this project has been disseminated to stakeholders in the ministries of education and relevant regulatory and professional bodies to seed it into the policy agenda of these countries. Key insights from this project have been shared with other researchers and opinion leaders in the spirit of creating global public good.
