About the session
This presentation offers a global perspective on issues concerning the nature of the 'teaching' that teachers learn and what helps teachers learn it. The presenters will look at the impact of both formal and informal aspects of teacher education. They will discuss how factors such as individual effort, collaboration with others, exposure to exceptional teaching, and supportive leadership and mentoring contribute to successful teacher learning. Are some factors more influential than others?
