ABSTRACT
This article presents Chapter 4 of this monograph issue which is entitled "Professional Development Workshops -- What Do Teachers Learn and Use?" by Bomna Ko, Tristan Wallhead and Phillip Ward. This research study followed a cohort of urban physical education teachers who participated in workshops related to innovative instructional and curriculum strategies for improving physical education teacher practice. Findings highlight what knowledge teachers use and why they don't use knowledge and skills provided in professional development workshops. The results of this study suggest that to design more effective professional development experiences requires extensive prior knowledge of the contextual barriers that exist within the target school setting.
