From 2013 to 2016, curriculum developers at the Tanzania Institute of Education collaborated with researchers at the University of Dodoma, University of Bristol and Aga Khan University to develop and pilot bilingual textbooks that support language learning across the curriculum. This was the Language Supportive Teaching and Textbooks (LSTT) project. Participants representing 18 organisations joined curriculum developers from Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) and teacher educators from the University of Dodoma (UDOM) to debate the implications of LSTT findings for: - implementation of the new language in education policy; - the design of textbooks; and - teacher education and professional development. Participants represented different types of organisations, who are working to improve secondary education in Tanzania, including teachers, teacher educators, publishers, the Ministry of Education, media and projects / programmes.
