Characteristics of Effective Professional-Development Programs

Quoted directly from The Role of Scientists in the Professional Development of Science Teachers
p.2, NRC, 1996 :
"Whatever form a professional development program takes and whatever organization sponsors it, it will be more effective if it is institutionalized to provide continuity and ensure long-term support. This message is vital."
