Professional Development in Systemic Reform

author: Susan Loucks-Horsley
description: This bibliography is from "The Role of Teaching and Learning in Systemic Reform: A Focus on Professional Development" by Susan Loucks-Horsley. In this paper, Loucks-Horsley discusses what she thinks we know about the role of professional development in systemic reform and what she thinks we still need to learn. Many of her references examine professional development in the context of systemic initiatives.
