The OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) asks teachers and principals about the teaching and learning conditions that research tells us improve teaching.
The proposed international video study of teaching practices will allow us to go one step further, by looking directly into the classroom. It will pilot methodologies to capture real teaching practices and will significantly add to data, such as those collected through the TALIS survey, by providing insights from classroom observations in an internationally comparative fashion.
The video study of teaching practices is undertaken as a pilot study with the aim of trialling the methodologies and examining the analytical insights from such data. It is expected to unfold over 3-4 years and to involve up to 9 countries or economies.
