QUINT Teaching Quality Webinar: Synthesizing research on Teaching Quality

This seminar "Synthesizing research on Teaching Quality – looking across frameworks" compares and contrasts different frameworks for understanding teaching quality.

The seminar is about comparing and contrasting different frameworks for understanding teaching quality to try to understand the benefits and limitations of the frameworks we use across the QUINT network. The goal will be to discuss these two papers that propose different ways of thinking about both defining and measuring teaching quality. We will then discuss the two frameworks and how we might draw from them to enrich and deepen our theoretical approach to exploring teaching quality.

Discussion points

  • How are we looking at teaching quality and what are the affordance and limitations of that approach?

  • What components of the MAIN-TEACH framework are we focusing on? which are missing from our work? Are there aspects we focus on that are missing from MAIN-TEACH?

  • How does, or does not, our work fit into these frameworks?

  • If we were to come up with a  similar framework to organize the theorizing around the different parts of the QUINT center, what would it look like? How different would it be from these examples?
