Place of Learning, Place of Practice: Elements That Affect the Transfer of Teachers' Professional Development to Students' Learning in Classrooms
Murrill, Leslie D.; Thomas, Timothy G.; Reynolds, Timothy L.
Teacher Educators' Journal, v20 p39-56 Spr 2013
The purpose of this paper is to bring to light elements that teachers require in order for learning gained during professional development sessions to find a place in their classroom practices and to affect student learning. Through their inquiry with K-12 educators at the Margaret Sue Copenhaver Institute for Teaching and Learning, a professional development program in southwest Virginia, the authors have devised recommendations regarding teacher needs and preferences for a climate that nurtures continuing professional growth. The authors also seek to define a data-gathering method that illuminates teachers' productive practices as framed by the Virginia Guidelines for Uniform Performance Standards and Evaluation Criteria for Teachers.
