DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xsl6bh/teaching) has announced the addition of OECD Publishing's new report "Teaching Practices and Pedagogical Innovations: Evidence from TALIS" to their offering.
The pressure to increase equity and improve educational outcomes for students is growing around the world. Teaching practices, in contrast to student background variables such as socio-economic status and cultural capital, are factors affecting student learning that are more readily modifiable. moreover, additional professional practices have received attention, especially those that help transform the school into a professional learning community.
Fortunately, teaching practices help shape the learning experiences and increase motivation and achievement for students. In addition, it has been revealed that when teachers collaborate well together they also tend to work better with students.
