Research, Policy, and Practice Connections: Conversations on Educator Quality

Research, Policy, and Practice Connections is series of conversations among AIR experts on emerging topics related to improving teacher and school leader effectiveness. Each video interview explores three questions:

  • Why is this topic relevant right now?
  • What are the key challenges and innovations?
  • What is AIR learning through research and practice?

In the Prezi format we use, you can follow the questions in the order they were asked or move back and forth within the conversation.

What are these evaluations meant to accomplish? And how can they best serve their critical purpose?
