Characteristics of effective teacher education in low- and middle-income countries: What are they and what role can EdTech play?
Even though teacher education programmes have the potential to improve pupil learning outcomes, the impact of these programmes has varied widely in LMICs. A lack of understanding of the specific characteristics that underpin the success of teacher education programmes can lead to poorly designed interventions. Current evidence does not allow researchers to conclusively identify the specific drivers of impactful teacher education programmes (International: Sims & Fletcher-Wood, 2018). However, a range of reviews has identified design principles that can potentially promote improved learning outcomes while the existing evidence base develops. This paper analyses a range of literature reviews to identify characteristics of effective teacher education.
