Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of (1) the current situation concerning teacher professional development (TPD) programs through studies referring to existing challenges; (2) the TPD programs under discussion that have been implemented during the last three years (2018-2021) in the context of European projects, including their structure and descriptions of the educational content; (3) teachers' views and feedback concerning the TPD program they attended, based on a specific evaluation framework, with focus on issues relevant to emerging technologies. The researchers provide directions towards an effective framework for horizontal TPD programs targeting large numbers of teachers, aiming to allow them to gain the appropriate knowledge and skills in order to integrate emerging technologies as concepts in interdisciplinary STE(A)M-based instructional scenarios, especially in the levels of Secondary general (Gymnasium and Lyceum in Greece) and (post)secondary vocational education (EPAL and IEK in Greece).
