Cultivating Dynamic Educators: Case Studies in Teacher Behavior Change in Africa and Asia, a new book from RTI International, responds to growing recognition by international education professionals, policy makers and funding partners of the need for qualified teachers and interest in the subject of teacher professional development. The book responds to a number of important questions that are fundamental to improving teaching quality by influencing teaching practice.
Edited by Sarah Remington Pouezevara, the book includes case studies describing different approaches to teacher behavior in various African and Asian countries. The key conclusion is that no single effort is enough on its own; teacher behavior change requires a system-wide view and concerted, coordinated inputs from a range of stakeholders.
