_TERMS OF REFERENCE_

_RESEARCH GRANTS FOR STUDENTS IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING TO PROMOTE
CRITICAL THINKING_

_Background_

The Zambia National Education Coalition (ZANEC)’s core mandate is to conduct
evidence-based advocacy for quality education for all Zambians. The niche of
the Coalition is thus to conduct research, analysis, monitoring and
influencing policy direction in the education and skills sector. In addition,
ZANEC is known for mobilising Civil Society Organisations and communities
through its Member Organisations located in various parts of the country,
giving the Coalition its national character.

ZANEC envisions a “sustainable and inclusive education system that responds to
national aspirations and fosters an environment of self-fulfilment”.
Implementation of this vision needs different stakeholders including
government, cooperating partners, non-governmental organizations, trade unions
and student movements.

ZANEC has been running the student Research Mentorship Programme since 2018
with the support of Norwegian Students’ and Academics’ International
Assistance Fund (SAIH). Since then, 30 students from various Private and
Public Institutions of Higher Learning across the Country have been provided
with technical and financial support to conduct academic style research on
topical issues.

_RATIONALE_

The ZANEC research mentorship programme is designed to enhance research
skills, critical thinking as well as effective analytical and communication
skills that are globally sought-after and incredibly beneficial for students
pursuing higher education. With the advent of the COVID 19 pandemic,
institutions of higher learning have had to close and open irregularly in
order to combat the spread. This has resulted in learning loss among most
students. One of the mitigation measures taken by higher learning institution
is the introduction of the blended approach to learning. This approach has
reduced individual student contact with lecturers, which is inevitable for
research skills related mentorship. In order to address this challenge and
mitigate the negative impact of COVID 19 on learning outcomes, ZANEC will
support some students to enhance their undergraduate research skills.
