Results-oriented professional development: In search of an optimal mix of effective practices


In this article, Guskey considers what that research says about the effectiveness of professional development. In particular, he considers the mixed messages reformers are getting from this research and how we might make sense of those messages. He then turns to a series of guidelines for professional development, drawn principally from the research on individual and organizational change. Finally, he examines the potential impact of implementing these guidelines.
