Developing teacher professional development programmes through practice-based research principle

Abstract / Introduction
Strength of Evidence

The model outlined here was evaluated with participants with positive results and it was developed based on research into effective CPD.

Transferability across countries and settings

Teachers who have been trained to teach via a transmission mode may find CPD which requires them to implement a cycle of active reflection: think, plan, do and test then repeat the cycle may be uneasy with the requirement to be actively engaged in developing new pedagogical approaches. However, their students will have to adapt to a rapidly changing world throughout their lives and teachers have a role in preparing them for this.
