Exploring the Impact of Professional Development Intervention through Reflection

Bahar Gun


Rather than being an analytical research inquiry, this article presents assessment of a specific professional development intervention focusing mainly on the impact of a 3-month in-service teacher education program on 10 English language teachers in Turkey. The data comes from various sources, namely, surveys, interviews, classroom observations and reflective journal entries. The training program is described in three phases: pre-intervention, intervention and post-intervention. Based on the data collected during three phases, the training program can be claimed to have an obvious impact on not only the participant teachers’ mind-sets about teaching but also on their day-to-day classroom practices.
