Abstract

This paper explores the lasting impact of professional development projects through the lens of participants in the Secondary Education Activity (SEA). A brief history and explanation of the SEA project are provided, as well as background about the Macedonian culture and education system. Characteristics of successful professional development, supported by research, are presented: instructional change, intellectual challenge, clearly conceptualized design, and an infrastructure that provides resources over time. A survey of 18 Macedonian teachers was conducted to determine their impressions of the project. Responses are summarized and analysed to determine which characteristics of successful projects were noted. The authors conclude that much was successful about the SEA project, but ultimately the project failed due to a lack of institutional support and resources that sustain successful projects.
