Studying teaching quality across subjects and settings
QUINT systematically investigates key features of teaching practices across the Nordic countries.
In what ways does teaching make a difference to student learning and engagement?
Do subject-specific or cultural-specific patterns in teaching and learning emerge? How are digitalization and multicultural challenges addressed in Nordic classrooms?
QUINT especially focuses on the following:
- Instructional practices and repertoires within and across the three core subject areas of mathematics, language arts, and social sciences across Nordic classrooms;
- The role of student engagement and interaction across different subjects and national contexts;
- How digitalization of the learning processes affects teacher– student interaction?; and
- How classroom climate and student composition, for instance, students’ backgrounds and inclusive and multi-lingual classrooms, impact student learning?
A key research topic will be the role of student engagement and how teacher–student interactions support student learning.
