Masterclass High Expectation teaching: Research, policy and practice
Discover what what teaching from high expectations means and understand how teacher expectations, school structures and government policies play a role in shaping expectations.
Research shows that high expectation teaching has a positive impact on student learning outcomes. Teacher beliefs, school structures, and government policies can all influence teacher expectations and have effects on student learning. This masterclass delves deeper into these and other topics such as differentiation, labeling, misconceptions, learning opportunities, and equity.
Practice-oriented research, where researchers and education professionals investigate questions arising from the field of education, contributes to sustainable practice improvement and the professional development of educators. In this masterclass, examples will be provided of potential research questions that could be addressed through practice-oriented research.
This masterclass will take place online via Zoom, and the login details will be emailed one week before the masterclass.
