The dimensions of great teaching – an Interview with Rob Coe

While many personal, family, and cultural factors contribute to learners’ academic performance, a large body of research indicates that teachers matter more to their achievement than any other aspect of their education. The quality of teaching is hugely important to the outcomes of students.

On 19th June 2020, Evidence Based Education released the Great Teaching Toolkit: Evidence Review – a credible evidence summary of the elements of great teaching practice. The review provides a structured point of reference for the things teachers do, know, or believe, which have been found to be related to how well their students learn. The overarching goal here is to help teachers take ownership of their professional learning and to help them enhance their practice for the benefit of students.

In this interview, we speak to the review’s lead author to hear him describe the dimensions of great teaching and how the evidence informed their development.
