— [http://goo.gl/3I1MPl] Teaching matters: Research on teaching qualities. What do we know?_______________________Kirsti Klette, University of Oslo.
Her areas of research is teaching and learning in classrooms/ video documentation of classroom learning/ how to measure instructional quality, and teacher education. Kirsti Klette has received major grants for national and comparative studies in these areas of research, including a recently national and Nordic funding focusing on Linking Instruction and Student Achievement (LISA).
In the video below Kirsti Klette will present data from the ongoing comparative project "Coherence and Assignments in Teacher Education" (CATE). The project investigates how different teacher education programs (in Finland, Norway, and the United States /California) meet the requirements of coherence and provide student teachers opportunities to learn that are grounded in practice. Using a comparative design that examines teacher education institutions and program features from different data sources and in three national contexts, this research provides information on teacher preparation across countries and programs. An overall aim of the project is to illuminate features of teacher preparation that link theory and practice more effectively in teacher education.
