The Organisation  for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will host a free webinar, Teachers for the 21st Century:  Using evaluation to improve teaching on Wednesday, March 13th at 1 pm Eastern Time.  For more information see the information we pasted below from OECD's website.

The webinars will present the report Teachers for the 21st Century: Using Evaluation to Improve Teaching which underpins the 2013 Summit with available research about effective approaches to teacher appraisal and examples of reforms that have produced specific results, show promise or illustrate imaginative ways of implementing change.  By looking at how appraisal results are used it shows how teacher appraisal can be a key lever for increasing the focus on teaching quality and continuous professional development for teachers, in keeping with the growing recognition that the quality of teaching affects student learning outcomes.
