Abstract
This paper is a discussion of the perceptions of teachers and principals on the professional development programmes available at their schools and their impact on teaching and learning. The discussion is part of an ongoing research conducted in Madurai, South India. An examination is made on aspects of teacher professional development that can have a positive impact on the change process and the conditions under which they take place. The conclusion is that professional development should be contextual in the sense that a strong foundation should be provided in the pedagogy of particular disciplines. It should address the complexities of teaching and the content should be aligned with the standards and the curriculum used in the classrooms. This could bring about effective change in classroom practice.
