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

We’ll explore:

  • 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.
