How do shared professional development experiences in project based learning impact teacher culture?
How do school leaders support communities during change? In our action research, we explored how shared professional learning experiences affect teacher culture in the midst of a school community moving towards project-based learning (PBL). We reviewed effective practices in adult learning and collegiality in schools. Through a series of interviews, surveys, focus groups, and exit slips, we collected data to learn about teachers’ experiences participating in a project design course embedded in an elementary charter school in San Diego.
