Innovative Teaching for Effective Learning (ITEL)
The Innovative Teaching for Effective Learning project investigates how to improve the quality of teachers and teaching in order to optimise student learning. In doing so it focuses on teachers' knowledge of effective teaching and learning, their opportunities to learn, and their motivation and beliefs about teaching.
The Innovative Teaching for Effective Learning project is comprised of two strands:
Research on 21st century teaching and learning
The Research Strand of the work has generated a steady stream of insights on teaching and learning through publications in the domains of neuroscience, spatial cognition, teachers' knowledge and teaching standards. Click here to see all publications.
The Teacher Knowledge Survey (TKS)
The Teacher Knowledge Survey is designed to provide objective and comparable measures of the specialised knowledge teachers have of teaching and learning, and whether this knowledge is updated with new research findings and adapted to 21st century skills. Click here to learn more.
The Teacher Knowledge Survey is currently being developed as part of the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) 2024. Recruitment of countries has now begun. For more information, please contact EDUITEL@oecd.org.
