What makes an inspiring teacher?
Emerald study reveals the key characteristics and practices of exemplary educators
Bingley, United Kingdom, 26 May 2016 – The term ‘inspiring teaching’ is increasingly used but rarely defined in the education landscape. A new study from Emerald Group Publishing
explores the characteristics and practices of outstanding teachers to reveal what the key ingredients are to being an inspirational teacher.
The study found that characteristics of inspiring teachers include:
• Having and transmitting enthusiasm
• Cultivating positive relationship with students
• Making learning purposeful and relevant for students
• Being flexible and adapting their practice.
The Journal of Professional Capital and Community (JPCC) is an international, professionally refereed, scholarly journal, reflecting the most important ideas and evidence of the nature and impact of interactions and relationships in the education profession, especially in the school sector.
Edited by highly acclaimed scholar Professor Andy Hargreaves, JPCC is free to access during 2016.
