Abstract

A Professional Development Plan (PDP) is used to structure teachers’ professional development path in terms of learning goals and plans of action. In order to study the effects of guidance on the quality of PDPs, the experimental group was offered a series of workshops whereas the control group did not have such guidance. Both groups were offered a simple structured PDP. To determine the quality of the PDPs an assessment tool was developed. The preliminary results presented in this paper indicate that guided teachers are more capable in elaborating their diagnosis concerning their strengths and in formulating learning goals. The guided teachers’ PDPs showed also more consistency.
