Professional development can be traced back to the early 19th century.


The history of staff development is characterized primarily by disorder,
conflict, and criticism. Much of what goes for in-service education is
uninspiring and ineffective (Davies, 1967). “Teachers participate in
Professional development because they believe it will help them be better
teachers and becoming better teachers means enhancing the learning
outcomes of the students” (Cannell, 2009).

Before the mid-1980’s, little research was conducted on professional


Development, however, with the onset of federally mandated initiatives,
such as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, professional development has
become a topic of interest in today’s pedagogical arenas. Brennen (2001)
described professional development as a “haphazard endeavor with
sporadic, isolated, relatively ineffective events unconnected
to school’s goals and aspirations” (p. 2).

Previous studies had shown interchangeable and contradicted findings


between professional development and efficacy as well as student
achievement (Blair, 2013; Hamilton, 2014). In addition, several factors have
been reported to be the contributing factors such as locality, types of
schools and demographical diversity among the respondents (Jennifer &
Rogers, 2013; Connell, 2014).
