DUQUE, Mauricio; CELIS, Jorge; DIAZ, Bibiam  and  GOMEZ, Margarita. Ten Pillars for a Teaching Professional Development Program Focused in Students' Learning. Rev. colomb. educ. [online]. 2014, n.67, pp.107-124. ISSN 0120-3916.

Students' learning has become the principal factor of quality in education. Several studies point out that the teachers' ability to teach has an impact on learning. The recent literature highlights different approaches to developing this ability. Based on research carried out over the last two decades, this article presents '10 pillars' that can contribute to the formulation of programs addressed to foster situated professional development of in-service teachers. These pillars might be applied to teacher training as well. Several pillars have been introduced on teaching professional development programs led by the Ministry of Education and some private organizations. These programs are based on pedagogical content knowledge and remark the importance of adopting new paradigms to train in-service teachers.

Keywords : Situated professional development; pedagogical content knowledge; in-service teacher training; teachers'beliefs; changes in classroom practices.
