Abstract

Teaching is a professional job. Continuing professional development (CPD) is a key responsibility for teachers and a key element in effective schools and successful education systems. INOVASI, a partnership program between the governments of Indonesia and Australia, is working with partners in the government and non-government sectors to develop a new approach to continuing professional development for Indonesian primary school teachers. This paper discusses the reasons why continuing professional development is so important, what we know about what works in continuing professional development, the INOVASI experience, and the role of the university in continuing professional development for practicing teachers.
