Fostering Learning Communities Among Teachers


  • OECD


According to the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS), teachers across countries overwhelmingly desire more professional development. In all TALIS countries, there are low rates of co-operative professional development and collaborative teaching practice. Countries could use professional development to effectively and efficiently build and improve professional learning communities in schools.
