BISAC: EDU000000

This series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. The field of education is consistently on the top of priority lists of every country in the world, yet few educators are aware of the progress elsewhere. Many techniques, programs and methods are directly applicable across borders. Topics discussed herein include a roadmap for curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation; assessing the quality of research on youth mentoring; an update on response-to-intervention in preschools; types of parent involvement as predictors of the post-secondary educational plans and future educational aspirations of 7th and 9th grade students; underestimation bias in monitoring accuracy using the gamma coefficient; training future physicians in legislative advocacy; assessment of the teaching quality of teachers of primary and special education; orientating pedagogy towards hybrid learning spaces; learning, teaching and assessing in Portugal; and corpus informed foreign language vocabulary instruction.
