Abstract

The “Offer-and-Use-Model for Teaching Effectiveness” is one of the most prominent causal models in current educational research. The current study aims to investigate the genesis and creation of the model regarding the following questions: What are the underlying assumptions, implications, prospects and limitations of the model? What is its overall relevance? We find that the purpose of the model is to provide a basis enabling deeper communication about the complexity of teaching processes.
