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). A mixed-method approach was adopted combining quantitative and qualitative data. 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.
