Archives For PDiE

For some time I have been an associate editor for the journal Professional Development in Education.  This is the peer reviewed journal of the International Professional Development Association.

The journal has adopted the strap line that it is ‘More than a journal‘. For those of us on the editorial board we think this captures what it is we are trying to do with the journal. It is an academic, peer-reviewed journal first and foremost. However, we also try to provide spaces to extend our debates much beyond the pages of the journal. This is in part achieved through our presence at academic conferences, but the journal also hosts a number of its own events and symposia.

Most recently we worked with the Mayo Education Centre in the West of Ireland to discuss teacher professional learning as it is being enacted in the different nations of the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Alex Alexandrou’s editorial in the most recent issue of PDiE makes reference to the event and is available as open access here.


My editorial for the latest issue of Professional Development in Education.  It challenges the government’s decision to allow Academy schools to appoint people into teaching roles who do not possess Qualified Teachers Status. The editorial available here.
