Teacher Professional Development in Crisis?

Rapid educational expansion in developing nations has created an increased demand for quality, trained teachers.

This need is particularly pronounced in fragile, conflict, post-conflict, and reconstruction settings due to the destructive impact of armed conflict and forced displacement on trained educational personnel. In order to fulfill the rising demand for trained and qualified educators, many nations and organizations have turned to teacher professional development (TPD); TPD often occurs in the form of pre-service training, in-service workshops, or distance learning.

Building on the productive online Discussion Series on TPD, which was facilitated earlier this year by Mary Burns and James Lawrie, INEE has produced an

Annotated Bibliography: Teacher Professional Development in Crisis.

This annotated bibliography, which compiles the relevant empirical research on TPD in fragile, conflict, post-conflict, reconstruction, and developing settings, is available in a truncated form on theINEE website, and the full Word version is also available for download.
