Program Description

Series description: WestEd; WGBH-TV; the Museum of Science, Boston; the Education Development Center; and Horizon Research, Inc. have produced a video collection and accompanying print materials entitled Teachers as Learners: Professional Development in Science and Mathematics.

These materials are based upon the book Designing Professional Development for Teachers of Science and Mathematics by Susan Loucks-Horsley, Peter Hewson, Nancy Love, and Kathy Stiles. The tapes provide images of a variety of professional development for teachers of science and mathematics for grades K-12.

Designed primarily to catalyze and inform discussion, the video collection includes 18 videotapes. The purpose of the collection is to inspire those who design teacher learning experiences to reflect on elements of effective practice and consider enhancements in their own programs.
