Research for Better Teaching (RBT) is a professional development organization dedicated to improving classroom teaching and school leadership. Founded in 1979 by Jonathon Saphier, Ed.D., RBT works to strengthen organizational culture and to institutionalize the study of teaching within schools and throughout school districts.
Jon Saphier is interviewed by the AERA Educational Change Special Interest Group in the June 2016 Issue of their "Lead the Change Series".
Our 2016 Open Program calendar includes an exciting slate of new programs, in addition to our established Studying Skillful Teaching and Analyzing Teaching for Student Results programs. No matter where educators are in their careers, RBT has expanded its professional development options for teachers, administrators, and instructional coaches to broaden their repertoire of skills.
