‘What makes a good Teacher?’ is a collaboration between The Gordon Cook Foundation and Character Education Scotland. The project aim is to provide some insight into what today’s secondary school pupils believe to be the most important qualities and behaviours in their Teachers.
Character Scotland have been working with Montclair State University researching the impact and effectiveness of the inspire>aspire programme on participants. The research aims to gain perspective on how teachers and pupils feel about the programme which will help improve the current project and value its success.
Whilst humility is already well established as a desirable virtue and character trait, but new research on the identification of virtues in everyday life has discovered a new concept, 'intellectual humility' which combines humility, intelligence and respect.
