This summer’s RISE Online Presentation Series continues the RISE tradition of gathering emerging scholarship that considers the learning crisis from an education systems perspective.
On 5 August 2020, the panel will explore the factors at play in attracting, retaining, and motivating good teachers. It features two papers that explore the broad set of career structures that jointly determine teacher behavior, and two papers that shed new light on the level and importance of teacher pay. RISE Research Fellow Yue-Yi Hwa will present a holistic model of teacher careers wherein pay is only one of a number of relevant factors, and where those factors vary across phases of the teacher career cycle (pre-service, novice, experience, and veteran).
Shintia Revina from the RISE Indonesia team will draw on ‘thick’ qualitative data from 16 novice teachers in Indonesia to highlight how non-pay factors – such as workload, and the prevailing norms modelled by experienced teachers – affected their motivation.
