Adaptability: An Important Capacity for Effective Teachers
Collie, Rebecca J.; Martin, Andrew J.
Educational Practice and Theory, v38 n1 p27-39 Mar 2016
A defining feature of teaching work is that it involves novelty, change, and uncertainty on a daily basis. Being able to respond effectively to this change is known as adaptability. In this article, we discuss the importance of adaptability for teachers and their healthy and effective functioning in the workplace. We discuss approaches for assessing adaptability and describe several important implications for practice and research that are relevant to the development of teachers' adaptability and furthering knowledge in this important area.
