Welcome to our national conference on the most untapped opportunity for Swedish schools…to increase job satisfaction and improve student results via feedback to teachers.
The conference’s main focus is on how teachers, school leaders and principals work systematically to develop teaching. This is to help students achieve their goals. It will also cover how to work with collaborative learning and lesson observations. Furthermore, additional focus will be paid to practical research and how national initiatives support for systematic career development in schools.
You are not born to a good teacher. Good teachers develop over time on their own and together with collaboration. The teaching profession is an art that becomes better and better over time. It is about having a degree as a base and then: experience, feedback, training, observing other skilled teachers, absorbing new insights from research, experimenting, developing personal experience, further feedback and training.
In other words, systematic observations, documentation and shared reflection are building structures for developing learning which is one of the most important assignments for leadership.
But only 11 percent of teachers in primary and secondary schools receive feedback on their teaching according to a Novus 2016/2017 study. An OECD survey TALIS (by 2013), found that 32 percent of teachers in Sweden have never received any feedback on their teaching.
Target audience: teachers, principals, decision makers, researchers and authorities.
