Editorial Reviews

Thomas R. Guskey
"Paul Bredeson’s application of architecture’s principles of function, structure, and beauty to professional development policies and processes offers a unique and highly stimulating perspective sure to alter the thinking and work of researchers and practitioners alike. Creating artful designs for learning with structural integrity that appropriately meet the needs of educators and the students they teach should be the concern of professional developers at all levels."
Professionally Speaking
“Intellectually evocative and practically grounded, this book acknowledges teachers as individuals and lifelong learners vitally engaged in their world and their profession. It should be at the top of the reading list for teachers, principals and anyone involved in planning, implementing or evaluating professional learning in and beyond schools.”
