CSET Speaker Series: Pondering Excellence in Teaching

Nicole Gillespie The Connection Between Excellence and Leadership
9 December 2014
CERAS 527

The idea that teachers can, do, and even should take on leadership roles in transforming education seems to be gaining ground.  But we are still in the process of developing a clear understanding of what teacher leadership looks like, how teachers develop into leaders, and the effects of teacher leadership.

Teacher research: a contribution to changes in schools
21 May 2014
CERAS 527

What kind of experiences have teachers had as they become teacher researchers in their schools? This is a question highly relevant to teachers who wish to reflect on their own practice. This is particularly applicable when considering teachers who aim to perform studies on broader school issues in order to support changes in their school. We have studied 30 research and development projects in the Netherlands in which teachers, school leaders and researchers collaborated.
