International Journal of Education and Development using ICT:  Vol. 12, No. 1 (2016)

IJEDICT aims to strengthen links between research and practice in ICT in education and development in hitherto less developed parts of the world, e.g., developing countries (especially small states), and rural and remote regions of developed countries. The emphasis is on providing a space for researchers, practitioners and theoreticians to jointly explore ideas using an eclectic mix of research methods and disciplines.

2013 International Summit on the Teaching Professio Using evaluation to improve teaching

#OECD #Education and Skills webinars: Using evaluation to improve #teaching - 27/02/2013

Lourense Das's insight:

2013 International Summit on the Teaching Profession
Using evaluation to improve teaching

OECD Education and Skills webinar series

with Andreas Schleicher – OECD Deputy Director for Education and Skills

and Kristen Weatherby – Senior Analyst, OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS)


Wednesday, March 13th 2013 at the following times

11:00 am Europe Time (Paris, GMT+01:00)

1:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)

 

What: The third International Summit on the Teaching Profession will bring together education ministers, union leaders and other teacher leaders from high-performing and rapidly improving education systems, as measured by the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), to discuss how teacher quality is defined and what standards are set and by whom; what systems are in place for teacher evaluation and how evaluations are conducted; and how teacher evaluation contributes to school improvement and teacher self-efficacy.

In some countries the concept – not to mention the use – of teacher appraisal sparks discussion just about wherever and whenever it is mentioned. According to what criteria? Who decides? And what should the results of teacher appraisals be used for?  The webinars will present the report Teachers for the 21st Century: Using Evaluation to Improve Teaching  which underpins the 2013 Summit with available research about effective approaches to teacher appraisal and examples of reforms that have produced specific results, show promise or illustrate imaginative ways of implementing change.  By looking at how appraisal results are used it shows how teacher appraisal can be a key lever for increasing the focus on teaching quality and continuous professional development for teachers, in keeping with the growing recognition that the quality of teaching affects student learning outcomes.

Who: Andreas Schleicher, OECD Deputy Director for Education and Skills and Special Advisor on Education Policy to the Secretary-General of the OECD and Kristen Weatherby – Senior Analyst, OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS)
