Abstract The unprecedented disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have necessitated a paradigm shift in education, compelling educators to adapt swiftly to the digital age. This review paper delves into the evolving landscape of teacher professional development in the post-COVID era, with a focus on addressing the multifaceted challenges and seizing the opportunities presented by technological advancements. Through a comprehensive examination of existing literature, we explore historical models of professional development, assess the impact of the digital age on education, and scrutinize the challenges faced by educators in adopting digital learning methodologies. The review also highlights effective models of teacher professional development, elucidating individualized learning plans, online courses, collaborative communities, and mentoring programs. Best practices and successful case studies are analyzed to distill key insights for enhancing teacher readiness in the digital era. Furthermore, the paper identifies current trends in teacher professional development post-COVID, encompassing the utilization of digital platforms, microlearning, and the integration of social-emotional learning. A critical discussion of challenges and barriers, such as limited resources, resistance to change, and time constraints, underscores the need for tailored strategies. The findings contribute to a nuanced understanding of the dynamics surrounding teacher professional development in the digital age, offering implications for future practices and concluding with a call for continued adaptability in the ever-evolving field of education.
