Funding Agency
Carnegie-Mellon University/Qatar Foundation

This study, conducted in collaboration with Carnegie-Mellon University, Qatar campus, and Qatar University, examines how public-sector English language teachers in Qatar use professional development (PD). As part of the larger trans-national *Learning4Teaching Project*, the national study investigates teachers’ experiences as central to unraveling systemic issues and improving PD outcomes. The study, which takes a sociocultural, phenomenographic approach, uses a mixed-methods research design that includes surveys, teaching logs, and classroom observations to document English language teachers’ views of how PD shapes their work.
