Literacy during COVID-19 and Beyond

International Literacy Day 2020 will focus on the theme of “Literacy, Education and Learning during Covid-19 and Beyond”, in particular on the roles of male and female teachers and the changing educational methods. Therefore, the topic sheds light on literacy from the perspective of lifelong learning, and therefore it focuses mainly on youth and adults who either lack literacy skills entirely or have poor levels in it.

International Literacy Day 2020 provides an opportunity for reflection and discussion of how innovative and effective teaching methods and teaching methodologies are being used in literacy programs for youth and adults and in the face of the epidemic and beyond. This day will also provide an opportunity to analyze the teacher's role as well as formulate effective policies, systems and measures to support the teacher and the educational process.
