dc.description.abstractThere has been an increase in the utilization of educational assistants in Central Alberta schools. The author questions how best to maximize the use of the educational assistants in the classroom setting. This paper summarizes a selection of the current research which highlights the absence of a cohesive definition of the role of the educational assistant which, in turn, impacts access to relevant professional development opportunities. The research suggests that increasing an individual’s self-efficacy through relevant and engaging professional development has measurable positive effects in the education system. Review of the data presented in this paper may potentially guide school districts towards providing professional development opportunities that increase self-efficacy for educational assistants.en_US
