Newsletter | February 2021

Dear WALS member,

Welcome to Spring 2021. Many schools and universities around the world continue under pandemic restrictions: empty (with all teaching online), open (with distancing constraints) or partially open (with online teaching for many). Educators are understandably exhausted. And yet, in this newsletter, the amazing resilience and determination of WALS community members to limit Covid’s damage to student learning shines through as strongly as it did during WALS2020 in December. The next task for the world’s educators is to help this ‘pandemic generation’ make up all the lost ground. The content of this newsletter looks forward, optimistically, focussing on how lesson study can help close that gap and on a few of the many roles WALS members are playing. My thanks to all the contributors and to WALS Hon. Gen. Sec. Jean Lang for pulling this edition together.

Pete Dudley,
WALS President.
