AITSL has developed a body of evidence-based products, including video case studies, self-assessment tools and feedback resources, that teachers and school leaders can access through the new AITSL website and apps.
Minister for Education and Training, Simon Birmingham, said the new website provided a ‘one-stop-shop’ for teachers to access evidence-based resources to improve their practice across every career stage.
Video case studies, self-assessment tools and feedback resources, as well as the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and Australian Professional Standards for Principals are available.
“Providing Australian teachers and school leaders with quick and easy access to these tools and resources will help them make a real difference to student outcomes,” Birmingham said.
“I commend AITSL for its leadership in supporting our teachers and school leaders to strive for excellence and recommend that any educator looking for guidance make use of the one stop shop AITSL has brought together.”
