The study was conducted to benchmark the best instructional practices of graduate-level teacher education programs in Region IV-A. Using the exploratory sequential design, this study employed the qualitative method and was followed by the quantitative method. Focus group discussion was employed in the qualitative part of the study. On the other hand, statistical treatments such as weighted mean and Pearson-r were used in the quantitative phase. Graduate School administrators, faculty, and Graduate School students from five Higher Education Institutions in Region IV-A, Philippines were the respondents and participants of the study. Using SPSS Text Analytics, the qualitative phase revealed the following emergent themes: development of skills such as research skills, leadership skills, and problem-solving skills with regard to purpose; research, community extension, knowledge sharing, and online activities with regard to student engagement; innovations in curriculum and subject offerings, research, and special classes and the use of technology with regard to graduate program innovation; authentic assessment, examinations, and research with regard to the assessment of student learning, and positive attitude of professors, academic and professional relationships among students and professors, and technology with regard to classroom environment and culture. These themes became the bases for the development of a survey questionnaire. The quantitative study revealed that all the five dimensions of instruction in graduate school are “observed to a great extent”, with a grand mean of 3.72. An instructional framework as an input to a proposed graduate-level teacher education program was developed based on the results of the study.
