Professor Louise Stoll

This report follows on from the DfE white paper, The Importance of Teaching, and looks at framing teaching as an evidence-based profession. It asks what makes great pedagogy, and what role professional development has in creating that pedagogy.

It argues that school-to-school support and peer-to-peer learning amongst teaching professionals are important strategies for raising standards and improving the quality of teachers and school leadership.

Though the report does not offer recommendations itself, it poses a series of questions to school leaders, policy makers, and researchers on how to better integrate research and development into the school system, to encourage it towards self-improvement. 

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
