The Urban Professional Development School (PDS) Network represents a group of professional educators from a large, urban university and six public and private schools in the same metropolitan area committed to providing progressive models of professional development for teachers across the lifespan. This paper demonstrates how participants in this initiative have used existing research literature and their initial research to inform their PDS work and create a sustainable and informative research agenda that can inform the work of all PDS participants.
