How could this promote better learning?
The report identified six key factors in great
teaching and rated them from strongly evidenced (teachers’ content
knowledge and quality of instruction) through moderately evidenced
(classroom climate and classroom management) to factors with some
supporting evidence (teacher beliefs and professional behaviours).
Common practices not supported by evidence included
lavish use of praise, allowing learners to discover key ideas by
themselves, grouping students by ability, and presenting information
based on students’ preferred learning style.
The report included recommendations for practitioners
to sustain their professional learning across the short and long
