This "mini-symposium" consists of four short papers from the Beginning Principals Study, a longitudinal research study which commenced in 1989. The purpose of the symposium is to provide an overview of the design and nature of the study, to outline findings relevant to the professional development needs of beginning principals, and to describe a research plan for the trial and evaluation of a new, research based approach to induction and professional development. Discussion and comment on the findings and the research plan will be invited.
