In: The 11th Cambridge International Conference on Open and Distance Learning, 23-25 Sept 2005, Cambride, UK.
This research is a case study of teacher continuous professional development in Egypt. It aims to investigate the views of teachers, inspectors and training experts about the impact of training programmes using a distance leaning network on developing teachers’ knowledge. Some issues have been addressed in relation to reforming teachers’ practice inside classrooms. For example, this study reveals that “Professional Dignity”, which teachers exhibit as part of their identity as classroom practitioners, has an impact on developing teachers’ practical knowledge. In describing this case study, this paper first provides an overview of the National Network for Distance Training (NNDT). Second, it discusses the main findings of the study in relation to professional dignity and the acquisition of teacher knowledge
