The Characteristics of Effective Teacher CPD

Various reviews have examined a number of studies of teacher CPD in different countries. All of the reviews synthesised their selected studies to identify the characteristics of effective CPD. However, they used a range of measures by which to judge effectiveness as follows:

• Teachers’ content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge
• Teachers’ self-efficacy in the teaching of their subject
• Classroom environment (teacher behaviours, student behaviours, teacher-student interactions, teaching and learning activities)
• Student attainment outcomes

The module teacher training courses currently being designed by EPODS partners includes elements of the above with easily administered access to on-line tools, material and guidance.
