Key points covered are the purposes of teacher evaluation, teacher evaluation criteria and different ways of collecting evidence about what teachers can do.
The British Council recently published a report entitled ‘Teacher evaluation: Global perspectives and their implications for English language teaching’. In this webinar, Simon Borg discusses some of the key messages about effective teacher evaluation that are identified in this report, including:
- why teacher evaluation is important
- the different purposes it can serve
- what the focus of teacher evaluation should be
- how to collect evidence about what teachers can do.
Effective teacher evaluation is presented here as a contextually-appropriate, multi-dimensional process that draws on several sources of robust evidence and which generates results that are used to support the professional development of teachers.
