Identifying issues and ways forward: SWOT analysis

2.1. What is SWOT analysis?


SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.

The value of this as an educational strategy is that it is an invitation to collective reflection. This process enables participants to identify positive and negative issues in their own context and undertake changes and improvements with a positive impact (García Carrasco 2013).

SWOT is an efficient and effective framework to collaboratively construct strategic plans for a better education.
