Which Characteristics of a Reciprocal Peer Coaching Context Affect Teacher Learning as Perceived by Teachers and Their Students?
The main purpose of this article was to explore which characteristics of a reciprocal peer coaching program stimulated or inhibited the professional learning of 28 experienced teachers (14 coaching dyads).

It was found that teachers learn when they are intrinsically motivated to take part in professional development programs; when they feel a certain pressure toward experimenting with new instructional methods; and when they are able to discuss their experiences within a safe, constructive, and trustworthy environment.
