Synopsis

Educational researchers, policy-makers and practitioners are increasingly focusing their attention on Professional Learning Networks in order to facilitate teacher development and encourage school and school system improvement. However, despite the understanding that PLNs can contribute significantly to improving teaching practice and student achievement, there are key challenges regarding their use. These challenges include:























ensuring PLNs can provide opportunities for generating and sharing knowledge within schools

enabling teachers and professionals to direct their own development

helping individuals change their practices through inquiry-led approaches

facilitating partnerships which work across a variety of stakeholders

















In this new edited volume, Brown and Poortman evaluate these challenges from both a theoretical and practical approach. A multitude of perspectives from a team of international contributors covers:























the importance of Professional Learning Networks

the use of evidence within PLNs

the impact of inter-school networks

international cases of networks and communities

the promotion and sustainability of PLNs

















Also featuring case studies and exemplars to contextualise sustainable learning networks, Networks For Learning is an accessible and thoroughly-researched book, which will be essential reading and a valuable resource for researchers, teachers and school leaders who are interested in developing professional learning networks.
