Professional Development for Teachers: Setting the Stage for Learning from Teaching

By Linda Darling-Hammond


This paper argues that an effective teacher is one who learns from teaching rather than one who has finished learning how to teach.

It frames the job of teacher education and ongoing professional development as developing the capacity of the teacher to inquire reflectively and systematically into the nature of learning and the effects of teaching.
