Quality of teaching-learning processes in education: three case studies


Through 3 different case studies, this article reflects on past experiences of teaching and on different interpretations of the meaning of the word evaluation in today’s changing educational sphere.  Here, evaluation comes to comprise the entire experience in the classroom, from the abilities acquired by the students to the teaching and preparation of the teacher, to the way the teacher relates to the students and interacts with their contribution.  Evaluation is also seen as a moment of self-reflection by the teacher on his/her own abilities and on how the interaction with the students contributes to his/her own personal and professional growth.
