Teacher Development Research: Keys to Educator Success

Teacher Development Research: Keys to Educator Success | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

- Introduction
- Keys to Educator Success
- Evidence-Based Practices and Programs
- Avoiding Pitfalls
- Annotated Bibliography


Teaching quality has been defined as "instruction that enables a wide range of students to learn" (Darling-Hammond, 2012), and it is the strongest school-related factor that can improve student learning and achievement (Hanushek, 2011; Nye, Konstantopoulos, and Hedges, 2004; Rivkin, Hanushek, and Kain, 2005).

 

Knowing this, what is the best way to foster and provide ongoing support for good teaching practices? While every school is unique, research has identified several elements that can almost universally increase the chances for successful teacher development and create a powerful and positive school community.

Planning the map inside your head is the most important task of a man. Without a plan a person is just a clueless wanderer. And into the vast oceans of information a wanderer is just bound to be lost. Map in your mind, what is research all about, what are the key points and what you hope to achieve as the conclusion of this research and does your information smoothly flows proving towards your conclusion? This makes the job of searching easier.

- Introduction

The following programs have received support by independent evaluators or peer-reviewed publications, using independent outcome measures, and have developed to scale nationally.

 

As professional-development research is in an early developmental stage (Borko, 2004), not many programs have strong empirical support. Please leave a comment to share professional-development programs that have strong evidence of success.
