New Professionalism and the Future of Teaching

 

About ‌‌‌‌‌Teachers, Teaching

 

The New Professionalism and the Future of Teaching project contributes to strengthening the quality, coherence and continued ‌relevance of OECD work on teachers and teaching. To this end, it includes two strands:

Strand I aims jointly with the EDPC Schooling, Teachers and Teaching project to review the present knowledge base and develop a road map for future analytical work in close collaboration with countries.

Strand II continues the in-depth analysis on the future of teacher professionalism. It explores new dimensions of professionalism that empower teachers to tackle challenges in today's and future classrooms.

An international multi-stakeholder qualitative study will examine teacher professionalism and cross-sectoral collaboration and support new policy thinking by:

  • learning from expertise and experiences of reinforcing and innovating professionalism and collaborations in other sectors
  • analysing trends and scenarios for the future as well as lessons-learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic and their meaning for the changing roles and new skill and capacity requirements of teachers and education stakeholders
  • collecting and combining the perspectives of multiple stakeholders and improving the mutual understanding of expectations and roles as a foundation for well-functioning collaborations and a strong professional identity of the teaching workforce
  • identifying policies and practices inside and outside the education sector that are proactive and future-oriented, enabling the preparation and empowerment of teachers, schools and partnering stakeholders for the future.

Working Paper: Reinforcing and innovating teacher professionalism
 

Webinar



Background

Strand I helps ensure the continued coherence and relevance of the work of the Directorate for Education and Skills on teachers and teaching. This involves taking stock of the state-of-the-art on teachers and teaching, identifying gaps in the knowledge base and scanning the horizon for the challenges and opportunities of teaching in the decades to come.

Strand II pushes the research agenda forward, explores new dimensions of teacher professionalism, and, thus, expands the knowledge base on teachers and teaching. Tackling the challenges of the future requires a strong and empowered teaching profession and a better understanding of professional dimensions not well covered in research thus far.

 

The international multi-stakeholder qualitative study supports:

  • learning from other sectors
  • reinforcing and innovating professionalism and collaborations
  • analysing trends and scenarios for the future
  • understanding the changing roles, new skill and capacity requirements for teachers and education stakeholders
  • collecting and combining the perspectives of multiple stakeholders
  • improving the mutual understanding of expectations and roles
  • identifying proactive and future-oriented policies and practices
  • enabling preparation and empowerment of teachers, schools and partnering stakeholders for the future.
