Professional Development (PD) for teachers has great potential; but it also comes with costs. We know that teachers engage in PD activities whilst balancing multiple and, at times, competing commitments and time pressures. More than ever there is a need for PD to be well-designed, selected, and implemented so that the investment is justified.
During this webinar, school leaders, educators and researchers will explore the latest evidence-based guidance and recommendations on PD that is likely to have the most impact.
Hear insights about research and practice from:
- Tom Cain, Assistant Principal at Monterey Secondary College
- Laureate Professor Jenny Gore, Director Teachers and Teaching Research Centre, University of Newcastle
- Kirsten Mould, Senior Associate, Education Endowment Foundation
- A new review of the global evidence that seeks to move the evidence-base forward by identifying the ‘mechanisms’ or crucial elements of professional development that lead to impact.
- How these mechanisms may be incorporated into effective PD design.
- Reflections from Australian and English school leaders about how these recommendations may inform school practices.
