WHAT

The American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will hold an interactive policy forum on "Measuring Teaching at a Global Scale--Policy Perspectives on the Findings from the Global Teaching InSights Video Study" at 9:30-11:00 am EST, Tuesday, November 24. Register here: https://aera.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_t7MeSsGgSc6Vtq1ssMIdmw.

By directly observing teaching in the classroom, OECD's Global Teaching InSights Video Study--formerly known as the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) Video Study-- examines classroom management, social-emotional support and instructional practices in the classroom, as well as students' opportunities to learn the content specified in the curricula. Findings from "Global Teaching InSights-A Video Study of Teaching" were released on November 16, making this research-to-policy forum significant and timely.

Following welcoming remarks from AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine, Andreas Schleicher, director of the OECD Directorate of Education and Skills, will give a brief presentation on the study findings. An international panel of policymakers, experts, and representatives from the teaching profession will then consider the results from their vantage and discuss implications for further improving teaching and learning.
