This paper explores the strengths and limitations of a professional development exercise (Annual Teacher Meetings) in which teachers of different schools come together to Aga Khan University Examination Board’s Middle School Programme (MSP), held across different regions of Pakistan among its partner schools. In total thirty seven schools participated and fourteen Annual Teachers Meeting sessions were conducted in five different cities across the country. All sessions were facilitated by teacher development personnel with the following aims: developing an enriched understanding of the process of project implementation; sharing successes and challenges faced during the process in their context; strengthening understanding of competency assessment; nurturing an environment of constructive feedback and encouraging a culture of sharing among teachers.
