Research focus

Research on teaching quality suggests that significant advancements have beenImage may contain: Font. made in conceptualizing, operationalizing and measuring teaching quality over the past two decades. However, the field still strives with challenges related to:

In this third QUINT conference, we address all of these issues. We welcome especially papers that address ways of theorizing teaching quality, testing out frameworks, models, and theories of what constitutes high quality teaching and schooling.
