The third QUINT conference 'Theorizing and Measuring Teaching Quality: Instruments, Evidence and Interpretations' will bring together world leading scholars with a keen interest in discussing the many aspects of measuring teaching quality, 7-10 June, Iceland.

Conference Theme

Theorizing and Measuring Teaching Quality: Instruments, Evidence and Interpretations

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

(i) ways of conceptualizing teaching quality

(ii) differences in terminology and language used

(iii) difficulties in operationalization and measurement and

(iv) epistemologies and theoretical underpinnings

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.
