The Difference in Professional Development with Corporate Companies and Public Education
Smith, Yolanda E.; Kritsonis, William A.
Online Submission, National Journal for Publishing and Mentoring Doctoral Student Research v3 n1 2006
Like practitioners in other professional fields, educators must keep current with the emerging knowledge and must be prepared to use it to continually fine-tune their conceptual and craft skills. Is there a difference between the professional development training experienced by teachers verses the professional development provided to other occupational professionals? If so, how does that effect the quality of education given to students by educators who may feel that their professional development training is ineffective, not relevant, and out of touch?
