Melville, Wayne; Wallace, John
Journal of Science Teacher Education, v18 n4 p543-558 Aug 2007
This study explores teacher professional learning within the workplace context of a science department community.

Implications for establishing sound conditions for teacher workplace learning are also considered, particularly the importance of trust.
