Cross-national Synthesis on Education Quality Report No. 3
Professional Development and and Implementing Active-Learning, Student-Centered Pedagogies
This is the third in a series of reports on the Cross-National Synthesis of Educational Quality, a comparative study conducted as part of the USAID-funded, Education Quality Improvement Program 1 (EQUIP1) Leader Award and focused on issues of educational quality at the school, classroom, and community levels across national contexts. This third cross-national synthesis report draws on information on educational quality obtained from three EQUIP1-conducted pilot studies: Quality in Education, Teaching, and Learning: Perceptions and Practice in Ethiopia (Asgedom et al., 2006); Quality in Education, Teaching, and Learning: Perceptions and Practice in Namibia (van Graan and Leu, 2006); and Educational Quality in Islamic Schools in Nigeria (Abd-El-Khalick et al. 2006).
