EI for Teachers

EI for Teachers is an online professional development program for teachers.
The program enables teachers to: receive feedback on their practice; set evidenced-based development goals that are aligned to best-practice; and plan and track activities towards meeting their goals.
Our best-practice framework for teachers was developed with teachers and in conjunction with the University of NSW. The framework draws on research (Measures of Effective Teaching [MET], Danielson, John Hattie) and focuses on the behaviours in the classroom that impact most on student outcomes.

High impact since 2012

  • 500,000 students have provided feedback to teachers through EI for Teachers.
  • 10,000s of classroom observations have been recorded
  • 10,000s of teachers have used evidence collected during the process to set development goals that has helped them be more effective as teachers.

A Unique Approach

portal

Unlike other solutions we don’t stop at feedback and goal setting. Our portal enables teachers to plan and track activities towards meeting their goals.

  • Teachers can read, watch, and listen to resources targeted at their development area.
  • Record reflections, activities they have tried in lessons, learnings from peers, and coaching/mentoring conversations.
  • And this is recorded in a progress/achievement diary which can be printed and shared with peers or leaders.

Library of Resources

Our library of hundreds of resources curated from EI experts, the EI teachers community and our partner learning organisations offer teachers a tailored learning experienced targeting the area of competency they are working on.

4. Plan and track activities

In the EI portal teachers record reflections, activities they have tried, learnings gained from peers, and insights from coaching/mentoring conversations. All this is recorded as an achievement diary which can be printed and shared.

5. Measure progress

Teachers can get access to progress feedback on the area they have been working on. A smaller set of surveys is used to get progress feedback and teachers can assess how they have progressed so far.
