The OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) is an international, large-scale survey that focuses on the working conditions of teachers and the learning environment in schools across the world. TALIS aims to provide timely, comparable and useful information to help countries review and develop policies in support of a high-quality teaching. Alberta is the sole Canadian jurisdiction to participate in TALIS 2013 along with 33 countries/economies. The session will highlight key findings for Alberta in the following areas: Who are our school principals? What formal training/preparation and support do they have? What kinds of professional development opportunities do they have? What is the nature of their work and what do they focus more attention on? What factors impact their work and their level of satisfaction? How do leadership practices in Alberta compare with other top performing countries that participated in TALIS? This will be an interactive session with opportunities for participants to react to the findings and discuss the implications for their own work.
