Mª José Fernández Díaz, Jesús Miguel Rodríguez Mantilla y Angélica Martínez Zarzuelo


This paper has been carried out from data obtained in the TALIS 2013 study, conducted by the OECD, where important teaching aspects of secondary school teachers from 32 countries have been evaluated.

The importance of the information in this macro-study has led us to analyse the situation of Spanish teachers. Therefore, the aims sought are to analyse the teaching practice of Spanish teachers of Compulsory Secondary Education, compare the situation in Spain with the rest of the participating countries and identify teaching profiles of Spanish teachers. Some of the most significant findings rank Spain in the middle of the evaluated countries, highlighting specially the exchange and collaboration in teaching and its own effectiveness, and showing lower values in aspects linked to involvement in joint professional learning activities. Regarding teaching profiles, it has been identified on one hand a profile of teacher with a constructivist view, and on the other a profile focused on the mere transmission of knowledge..
