MONTEIRO, Ana Claudia Fernandes  and  MOURAO, Luciana. Professional development: the national and international scientific production. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp. 39-45. ISSN 1984-6657.

Professional development forms a concept of significant relevance in labor activities. The objective of this research was to present a literature review of national and international scientific literature on Professional Development and Experiential Learning. From Google Scholar, Harzing´s Publish or Perish software, we researched 514 articles, published in English and Portuguese between 1994-2014. We performed a bibliometric study and then analyzed abstracts or full texts for a literature review. The categories of analysis used in the research were: year of publication, target audience, type of professional development activities, variables and method used. It was possible to conclude that: (a) there is a predominance of qualitative research; (b) there is a lack of theoretical foundation models in the studies; (c) the predominant target audience is teachers; (d) there are few studies that indicate predictor or consequence variables of professional development.

Keywords : professional development; experiential learning; literature review; bibliometric study; desarrollo profesional; aprendizaje experimental; revisión de literatura; estudio bibliométrico.
