Amol Padwad and Krishna Dixit 

This bibliography will help raise awareness about CPD among teaching professionals by listing in one place a wide range of material dealing with numerous aspects of and perspectives on CPD. 

It will also be a useful resource for anyone who wishes to venture into CPD, whether as a researcher or a practitioner or both. 

The bibliography has been arranged in three sections – articles and short pieces on CPD, books on CPD and background reading that may usefully inform any thinking and action on CPD. In each section the entries are arranged alphabetically by the surname of the first author. The entries in Section 1 are broadly related to four thematic areas: CPD Research and Case Studies, CPD Policy and Design Frameworks, CPD Theoretical Considerations and Perspectives, and CPD Strategies, Approaches and Models.

We offer this bibliography as a preliminary tool for anyone who wishes to delve deeper into CPD.
This publication is free to download.
