    Abstract

    In this contribution we would like review developments in the TL21professional development programme for teachers in the last few years. Learning Anew, the final report on the TL21 project, was published in January 2008. The last chapter contained not a set of recommendations but a collection of “ideas worth considering” by all of the main parties in Irish post-primary education: teachers, school leaders, students, managerial bodies, schools inspectors, policymakers. These ideas, seven in total, were based on priorities for teachers’ CPD that came to define the project’s work during its active phase. Some of these were envisaged from the start in the project’s main aims. Others emerged during the course of the project’s intensive research phase (2003-07). All of them however became central concerns in the project’s developmental initiatives, and in the ongoing TL21 Professional Development Programme that was inaugurated following the completion of the intensive research phase.
