With the increase in professional development (PD) programs that use video as a means for supporting teachers’ learning and instructional improvement, there is now interest in understanding the thinking and decision making that occur behind the scenes in facilitators’/designers’ minds as they plan and lead PD that capitalizes on the power of video. This special issue brings together four effective video-based PD programs, two in mathematics and two in science. Each paper presents a study of one of these four programs, representing one of Borko’s (2004) 3-phases of research on PD. The papers include analysis and discussion of facilitator’s moves, tools and frameworks for designing and orchestrating video-based PD programs, and strategies and resources used for effective facilitator preparation.
