In this book, Judith T. Witmer and Steven A. Melnick provide an overview of adult learning and its impact on professional development. The chapters provide a theoretical foundation along with practical advice on implementing team-based professional development among educators within school districts which will lead to true systemic reform.

This book provides educators and administrators insights into the trials and successes of team-based, interactive K-16 learning following a ten-year research record. It reflects the reality of working with teams on site-based interactive learning while providing practical techniques on implementing and sustaining learning through team-based professional development.--Beth Cornell, fine arts and humanities advisor, Pennsylvania Department of Education
