What Is the Point of Professional Development? The First Three Years of a Longitudinal Research Survey
Boyle, Bill; Lamprianou, Jason
Journal of In-service Education, v32 n1 p129-131 Mar 2006
The first two years of the authors' research study into models of professional development (PD) of a longer duration than workshops or conferences and the impact of those types of PD activities on teaching practice were reported in Boyle et al. (2004, 2005). The research team has now completed the third year of the research and this report updates the earlier findings. The research study examined the relationship between types ("traditional" or "reform") and features of PD that have been identified and defined in the literature, and self-reported changes in teachers' classroom teaching strategies. The sample consisted of heads of department or key stage coordinators of English, mathematics and science across primary and secondary schools in England.
