In this webinar, Professor Sally Thomas investigates the nature and extent of educational evaluation and teachers’ professional development, as well as the existence and relevance of professional learning communities.

Professor Thomas explores selected findings from two projects: ‘Improving Educational Evaluation and Quality in China’ and ‘Improving Teacher Development and Educational Quality in China’. 

Both quantitative and qualitative data has been analysed, including interviews and focus groups with 170+ stakeholders, teacher and pupil survey data from 100+ senior secondary schools in three regions.

The research projects were conducted in collaboration with the National Institute for Education Sciences in Beijing. Both projects were funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID) and Economic and Social Science Research Council (ESRC).
