About:  CW4WAfghan is conducting an impact study on open educational resources (OERs) in Afghanistan, and seeks to engage an experienced education consultant with a research design background to advise and support us in carrying out this study.

Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAfghan), a charity established in 1996, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a research grant to study the impact of open educational resources (OER) in Afghanistan. The grant is awarded by the Wawasan Open University, Penang, Malaysia, which is coordinating a series of OER impact studies. These, together with a series of OER adoption studies coordinated by the University of Cape Town, form the Research on OER for Development (ROER4D) programme.

It is just 7:00 a.m. and Afghan teacher Soraya is rushing off to school – not to fill her role as a teacher, but rather to become a student. She arrives in a classroom in Parwan province, where she will join 30 other teacher-students to receive four hours of intense instruction in the pedagogy of teaching Chemistry. She will learn how to base her curriculum on inquiry-based learning, where her students will be expected to conduct experiments, to work in groups to solve problems, to help formulate hypotheses, and to learn how to properly and appropriately use a microscope.
