Area 1: An Overview of Evidence for the National Approach to Professional Learning in Education

Lee, Clare and Richings, Lorraine (2018). Area 1: An Overview of Evidence for the National Approach to Professional Learning in Education. Welsh Government, Cardiff.

Abstract

This report reviews published literature on the way that countries around the globe have organised and systematised professional learning for teachers in a time of curriculum change. It first reviews country specific literature and then presents evidence on the organisation of professional learning from more general literature, which is more concerned with improvements in practice. All literature used is either from peer-reviewed journals or from academic books. The literature was found by using scholarly search engines, searching under various terms indicating professional learning. In this way literature was uncovered that will be used to support or to question the approach that the Welsh Government takes towards professional learning in education.
