Fortunately, teaching practices help shape the learning experiences and increase motivation and achievement for students. In addition, it has been revealed that when teachers collaborate well together they also tend to work better with students. This new informative publication clearly identifies and arranges profiles in relation to two connected areas of professional teacher practices: classroom teaching practices and participation in professional learning communities.

This practical book enables a more comprehensive understanding of teaching practice and participation in professional learning communities nationally and internationally. It provides policy makers and other key stakeholders with the relevant information they need for educational system monitoring.



This chapter introduces the premises and vocabulary needed to understand and interpret the report. It sets forth what the TALIS 2008 has ascertained about teaching practices and teachers’ participation in professional learning communities. Chapter 1 also states what the TALIS study was unable to measure; for example, the cause-and-effect relationship between teachers’ level of motivation and their participation in extracurricular learning activities. Chapter 1 indicates that country-by-country profiles will further develop the TALIS findings.
