Constituting teacher community

Warwick Institute of Education Research Seminar

Professor Judith Warren Little, NCSL International Research Associate (Warwick)

Judith Warren Little is the Carol Liu Professor of Education Policy at the Graduate School of Education, University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Little received her Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Colorado in 1978. Prior to taking a university position in 1987, she directed the Professional Development Studies Program at Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development (now WestEd) in San Francisco.

Dr. Little concentrates her research on teachers’ work and careers, the contexts of teaching, and policies and practices of professional development. Her earliest work established the importance of workplace norms of collegiality and experimentation for school success and adaptability to change. In subsequent research, she has delved more fully into the nature of teachers’ professional community and its relationship to teacher development and school reform.

Dr. Little has published numerous papers and co-edited two books in the areas of teachers' work, school reform, teacher policy, and leadership. She is an elected member of the National Academy of Education.
