This study addresses the question of whether university professors and experienced teachers can work collaboratively over time to improve teacher education and classroom practice in social studies and global education. Eight classroom teachers identify factors associated with an effective professional development school network and examine issues and concerns that may threaten its survival. Major factors include the diversity of teachers and schools, new roles and opportunities, problems with challenging the status quo, scrutiny and reflection of practice, time commitments, and difficulties dealing with university cultures.
