Penuel et al. (2012). Using Social Network Analysis to Study How Collegial Interactions Can Augment Teacher Learning

Weaker teachers seem to be influenced more by professional development itself, stronger teachers by their collegial interactions.

So this professional development has a strong indirect effect.
