  • Africa Lesson Study (AfriLS) forum: Through this newly established forum we aim to collaborate to co-create knowledge and expand research work on LS in the continent and share it globally. The institutions which are part of the AfriLS forum are: University of Pretoria; University of Rwanda; St John’s University (Tanzania); Center for Mathematics Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA) (Kenya); Ministry of Education (Botswana); Department of Basic Education (South Africa); Nalikule College of Education (Malawi).
