From mirage to reality: Redesign professional learning to improve classroom teaching

The Mirage: Confronting the Hard Truth About the Quest for Teacher Development, released today, recommends that we re-envision professional learning by asking fundamentally different questions about what better teaching means and how to achieve it.
