Twenty-eight years ago The Open University initiated experientially-based PD courses for teachers at a distance. Video and mathematical tasks were used to provide experience which was commented on using constructs derived from the literature. Here we report on a study to find out what roles the constructs had played in people’s subsequent professional life. Data consisted of some 300 responses from former students to an on-line questionnaire and 15 follow-up semi-structured interviews. Findings suggest that a labelled framework experiential approach has led to teachers changing and developing their approach to teaching using constructs encountered in the courses.
