OUR 360 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TOOL WILL
ENHANCE YOUR TEACHING PRACTICE
EI for Teachers helps educators develop their practice. EI does this by analysing eight areas of teaching practice which research tells us drive teacher effectiveness and student outcomes.
Teaching Strategies and Behaviours
EI for Teachers looks at eight areas of teaching practice which research tells us drive teacher effectiveness. Here are some of our eight teaching competencies.
Making lessons an appropriate level of difficulty
Managing the Classroom
Practising sound classroom management
Using communication skills to grab and hold attention and interest
Deploying constructive, formative assessment to improve student performance
Teaching Competencies and Circumplex
The eight competencies, as presented in the EI circumplex, explore various behaviours and strategies of teaching practice. This facilitates discussion about things you can do better, differently, more or less, to improve the quality of learning in your classroom.
The EI Circumplex is a rich tool for analysis – but most importantly it is a conversation starter to get you talking with your colleagues in a common language.
Taking your data and insight further
EI supports the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Each question has been mapped to the relevant focus area allowing you to see a snapshot of your feedback against the associated standards. We support these insights through summary reports with detailed manhattans and gap analysis.
The Educator Impact portal gives you the opportunity to record actions and progress towards your goals, and allows you to share that progress with your colleagues and school community.
The portal has a growing library of curated resources for each competency which are recommended by fellow educators and drive improvement for your practice in your chosen competency.
Be one of the first to have your insights, actions and growth in one place.
