Abstract

This paper maps the current situation of teacher professional development and policy reforms in India, the teacher quality concerns in Indian schools, and the trends and challenges in professional development of teachers in India. It seeks to review the emergence of new technologies for teacher professional learning in India and what (if any) professional learning solutions have been developed to improve the quality of professional development in India. It presents the current contexts affecting professional development of teachers in India and goes on to provide some examples of the emergent learning networks for teacher professional development in India. The paper suggests the need to explore the potential of learning networks to support teacher professional development and teacher quality in India.
