Two SOE alumnae, Dr. Jenny DeMonte and Dr. Emily Rainey, served as U.S. representatives for The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS), which studies initial teacher preparation in seven countries.

DeMonte and Rainey represented the U.S. at the "Understanding and Using Evidence to Support Initial Teacher Preparation Policy, Reform, and Practice” symposium held in Tokyo in June 2018. The symposium, attended by more than 150 education researchers, policymakers, and practitioners, was part of a closing meeting for the OECD TALIS study.

DeMonte was the national lead for the U.S. part of the study, and designed the site visits for the U.S. review in 2016. She also accompanied OECD researchers to the Netherlands. Rainey was the lead researcher for the OECD for the review of teacher preparation in Wales.

The final report from the OECD’s review of teacher preparation in seven nations will be released in the fall of 2018.
