The Role of Teacher Research in Continuing Professional Development
Kirkwood, Margaret; Christie, Donald
British Journal of Educational Studies, v54 n4 p429-448 Dec 2006
This article sets out to examine the role of teacher research and enquiry in the professional development of teachers. The context derives from the initiative of the Scottish Executive to enhance the status and working conditions of teachers. We consider the extent to which continuing professional development activities arising out of the Chartered Teacher Programme encourage teachers to value research, equip them to become research-minded and support them to engage in research and enquiry in their own professional contexts.
