Interesting post today by the OECD identifying the important role of the teacher to the success of the child in the school. May seem quite obvious to most of you, but something we often take for granted.
Also interesting final note that data from the 2008 Teacher and Learning International Survey ( Talis ) identifies the relationship between the way teachers teach and their view of community-based learning – an important principle of this holistic assessment approach.
“Excellent teachers view teaching as a collective responsibility within the profession, not as an individualised thing happening behind closed doors. They open the doors of their classrooms, inviting colleagues to engage in what they are doing but also disclosing what happens in classrooms to the outside world.”Skip to sharing
