Professional learning for teachers is recognised as a vital element in the quality of teaching and learning in schools. Research here identifies features of effective professional learning and evidence of its effects - not only on classroom practice, but also on student learning outcomes. Research that can guide schools and systems in designing programs that are more likely to lead to significant and sustained improvement in students' opportunities to learn is a priority.
