Teacher Resource Centre
This briefs presents what teacher representatives gain through coordinated action. The involvement of teacher representative bodies in broader policy dialogue takes place through multi-stakeholder coordination mechanisms, including local education groups (or the equivalent). Here, they can bring the attention of decision makers and other partners to issues and practices for ensuring coherence in the implementation of education policy, including investments needed in teacher preparation, professional development, raising teaching standards and improving teacher well-being.
Cyberbullying on social media: an analysis of teachers’ unheard voices and coping strategies in Nepal
Teachers can be potential victims of cyberbullying, particularly targeted by their students at their workplaces.
This article explores teachers' individual coping strategies of sharing, ignoring and enhancing self-efficacy to handle technology strongly and confidently, and it concludes with the implications of collaborative coordination necessary for the development of strong policies and strict cyber laws for ensuring teachers’ cybersecurity in similar contexts.
This article presents a systematic review of existing literature on the extent of teachers’ self-efficacy in managing bullying and its connection to the likelihood that teachers will intervene in bullying, to their intervention strategies, and the prevention measures they employ, as well as students’ bullying behavior and their experiences of victimization.
The study presents practical implications in relation to teacher initial education and professional development: teachers with higher self-efficacy tend to intervene more often in bullying situations, so it's important that teacher training programs are designed to support teacher's self-efficacy, through the use of appropriate methods, such as the use of role-play to practice specific professional behaviours.
Putting PIRLS to use in classrooms across the globe. Evidence-based contributions for teaching reading comprehension in a multilingual context
This book aims to bridge the gap between science and practice and help teachers transform the latest scientific insights regarding reading comprehension into didactic guidelines to use in everyday practice for all students. It consists of two parts: Part I, Reading Comprehension: From Research to Practical Teaching Guidelines, comprises three chapters and discusses the teaching of reading comprehension in general. In Part II, Teaching Reading Comprehension in a Multilingual Classroom, the focus is on multilingual students.
To improve student performance, teachers need to understand the evidence base that informs and helps improve their practice. An area of research with significant implications for teaching practice is cognitive load theory.
This paper describes the research on cognitive load theory and what it means for more effective teaching practice. The first part of the paper explains how human brains learn according to cognitive load theory, and outlines the evidence base for the theory. The second part of the paper examines the implications of cognitive load theory for teaching practice, and describes some recommendations that are directly transferable to the classroom.
