Collaborative Lesson Research (CLR) is a model which addresses teaching and learning gaps through collaborative planning, implementing and organized post lesson discussions. 

The CLR study venture is among Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Centre for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA) and five Primary Schools namely Visa Oshwal, Karen C, Oloolua, Buruburu 1 and Kyamulendu. The collaboration started in the year 2019 and is expected to take three years.

With the onset of COVID-19, the engagement was halted with a hope of a little break and resumption. In November 2020, an online training was conducted from 23rd to 27th November. Organizers for the training were Japanese experts from Tokyo Gakugei University (TGU) with the Lead Researcher on CLR and key trainer, Dr. Akihiko Takahashi operating from the USA.

Participants were a team of CEMASTEA staff and teachers drawn from the five schools. The training involved synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
