Identifying and addressing productive and unproductive
student behaviours in South Australian schools
Posted: June 10, 2011
For the first time in 20 years South Australia is about to get an important new understanding of student behaviour in all of its schools. The special $500,000 Australian Research Council project led by the University of South Australia in collaboration with Flinders University and a coalition of principals’ associations and education sectors over the next three years has launched an initial survey. Over 20,000 teachers across South Australia have been invited to complete the survey, in government and non-government schools.The first phase of the research will provide quantitative data on the state of student behaviour in our schools and help support policy development and the kind of teaching theory and practice that will deliver better student outcomes and encourage teachers to remain in the profession by helping them to effectively engage their students.
