Professional development of teachers

The R&D Community on the Professional Development of Teachers is a long-standing group within ATEE. We frequently engage in ongoing research and have a long track record of book publication, papers published in a special issue of the European Journal of Teacher Education, and symposium presentations at annual ATEE Conferences.

The aim of our R&D Community is to contribute to thinking and action related to research, policy and practice focusing on the development of teachers’ career-long learning. This includes the induction of newly-qualified teachers and professional learning throughout a teacher’s career.


Our meetings are well attended and very inclusive. Many of our members have been active for years and bring a wealth of experience in research and practice related to teachers’ professional development.

A key strength of our R&D Community lies in how our members come from a wide range of countries in Europe and beyond. This gives us access to wide range of knowledge and information about teachers’ professional learning. We are always keen to involve new members in our discussions.

Our meetings include:

  • knowledge exchange about the professional development of teachers in different countries
  • planning for our RDC research projects (see recent projects)
  • sharing analysis of our findings
  • preparation of member presentations
  • presentations of research papers to challenge and extend our vision of the professional development of teachers.
