Experience-Based Teacher Professional Development

Research Framework

The Angel Education teacher professional development program will create a learning community for teachers to explore, reflect and support each other. This workshop series - created at academic institutions and supported by research - is designed from the perspectives of education, sociology, philosophy and cultural studies.  The "dialogical space" that is created by the workshops will allow the teachers to bring in their personal experiences and assist them in reflecting on knowledge, their roles as teachers, teacher-student relations, and the intersection of school-family-community.  Research-based experiential activities will help teachers reach the highest professional goals associated with becoming effective agents of change for social transformation — all done for the benefit of children and youth.
