Peter Cole illustrates how a school can improve its effectiveness by strengthening the alignment between its professional learning, performance management and teaching practices and processes.  He addresses six questions - Why is there poor transference between professional learning and improved classroom practice?  What are the characteristics of effective professional learning?  How is a strong professional learning culture developed?  What are the characteristics of effective teaching practice?  How can effective professional learning practice be coupled with effective teaching practice?  How can effective professional learning practice be coupled with effective teaching practice?  Where does performance appraisal fit into the picture? - and argues for changes in classroom practice that promote improvements in teacher efficacy, student engagement and learning outcomes.
