New insights from TALIS 2013: Teaching and learning in primary and upper secondary education


"Who are our teachers, and what do they think about the job they do and the support they receive from their colleagues and from society as a whole? The OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) asked teachers and school leaders in lower secondary schools in 34 countries and economies about the conditions that affect the learning environment in their schools. The results of the 2013 survey, published in TALIS 2013 Results: An International Perspective on Teaching and Learning (OECD, 2014), show that, among many other findings, lower secondary teachers still work in isolation, rarely or never teach jointly with colleagues, and do not always receive meaningful feedback. They also show that teachers' satisfaction with their job is much more affected by students' behaviour than by the size of their classes.

This report broadens the results from TALIS to include responses from primary and upper secondary teachers."
