About the Author

Sally J. Zepeda is Professor of Educational Administration and Policy at the University of Georgia, where she teaches courses in instructional supervision, professional development, teacher evaluation, and school improvement.


"Professional Development: What Works lays the foundation for job-embedded professional learning, then builds upon that foundation by presenting a variety of processes and models that administrators and teachers can use to actualize professional learning. Dr. Zepeda's foundation is composed of interlocking components like school culture, teacher agency, adult learning, and collaboration. Her professional learning models include popular models like coaching and learning communities and less utilized but equally powerful models like lesson study and action research. All in all this book is a significant contribution by one of the most significant scholars in the field. "
-Stephen P. Gordon, Professor of Educational and Community Leadership, Texas State University

"Professional development is the oxygen of teacher growth. Educators need it to breathe, to do their heart and mind work, and to sustain themselves in our increasingly complex times. This groundbreaking book offers an updated treasure chest of cutting edge ideas, useful practices, and job-embedded strategies that serve as a roadmap for planning and implementing effective learning opportunities for teachers and the other adults in your care."
-Ellie Drago-Severson, Professor of Education Leadership and Adult Learning and Leadership, Teachers College, Columbia University
