The central concept of teacher effectiveness is a black box: it describes the outcome of what teachers do, without giving much of a clue as to how to work towards improving it. In this event, Simon will explore research that is unlocking the black box, and beginning to characterise effective teaching, with a huge input from teachers themselves. 

In a large-scale study, the first of its type in England, the researchers can identify which teaching practices contribute best to raising pupils’ GCSEs. The findings, therefore, help students (better GCSEs mean better life chances), teachers (offering a way to evaluate and improve their own teaching practices), school leaders (potentially raising the success of teacher recruitment), and teacher educators (providing new evidence).


 This event will be particularly useful for those interested in intial teacher education.

This is a hybrid event and can be joined either in-person or virtually.
