Professional learning in the form of training and coaching/consultation is central to supporting evidence-based practices in schools. The objective of this chapter is to review what is known about effective strategies to support adult learning and to compare frameworks for evaluating professional learning for educators. Five critical levels have been identified for evaluating educator professional learning. These are (a) participants’ reactions/perceptions of satisfaction, (b) participants’ learning, (c) organization support and change, (d) participants’ use of new knowledge and skills, and (e) student learning outcomes. Other topics discussed include evaluation approaches, methods, and tools for assessing the implementation and impact of teacher professional learning opportunities in a multi-tiered system of support initiative.
