Curee: The contribution of research to teachers’ professional learning and development

This paper summarises findings from several systematic
research reviews about the contribution of research to
effective continuing professional development (CPD)
activities and their impact on teachers’ professional
learning and outcomes for pupils. It starts with a review
of how teachers engage in and with research as part of
CPD, how teachers and researchers shape professional
learning activities and identifies key processes linked
to positive outcomes. Finally it explores how different
research contributions can be developed to make a more
visible contribution to CPD.
