Czető Krisztina: Efficiency and professional development: theoretical models of quality teaching and the characteristics of effective professional learning
Teaching quality has a remarkable impact on students’ learning outcomes, on their progress and on their attitudes towards school and learning, however the conceptualization of teachers’ quality and the measurement of teacher effectiveness are less revealed areas of effectiveness research (Ingwarson & Rowe, 2008; Gore, Smith, Bowe & Lubans, 2017). Supporting continuous professional development – as a strategy – plays a crucial role in the development of teachers’ teaching practices (Borg, 2018). The characteristics of effective professional learning is strongly influenced by the interpretation of the construct of quality teaching. Present study aims to reveal the theoretical models of quality teaching based on the development of teacher effectiveness research, and highlights the characteristics of effective professional learning.
