about this item

Part of a series, with a main volume by Linda Darling-Hammond and Dion Burns, EMPOWERED EDUCATORS: HOW HIGH-PERFORMING SYSTEMS SHAPE TEACHING QUALITY AROUND THE WORLD.

This work delves into a number of high-performing educational systems, and describes how they create a coherent set of policies designed to ensure quality teaching in all communities. The authors also closely examine how precisely these policies are translated into practice. The series spans systems across three continents and five countries.

In this volume, the authors delve into schooling in Australia and discuss recent reforms that have addressed teaching quality. Significant policies to date have included the development of nationally-consistent standards to underpin teaching. This is being closely followed by efforts to draw processes for each of teacher registration, teacher performance and development, and professional learning into line with these standards. This volume focuses on policy impacting teaching and learning in both Victoria and New South Wales.
