Register for the e-Learning for Educators: Effects of Online Professional Development on Teachers and Their Students webinar.
Are you considering the use of online delivery to provide widespread professional development (PD) needs to implement new initiatives? Are you looking at designing a PD model that can improve teacher performance as well as student achievement, both cost-effectively?
This first webinar on online professional development (OPD) provides an overview to the topic. Lynne Meeks, e-Learning for Educators Project Director at Alabama Public Television, will discuss the e-Learning model and the research findings of the large-scale studies conducted by the e-Learning for Educators (eFE) project.
These studies were among the first public studies demonstrating that high-quality online teacher professional development can positively affect teacher content knowledge and teaching practices. These improvements, the studies show, can then translate into meeting targeted student outcomes.
Register for this webinar, where you will learn:
- A successful, nimble OPD model that can produce both teacher and student improvements
- The research evidence supporting the effectiveness of the model
- Standards for high-quality OPD
School, district, and state administrators, as well as professional development providers such as regional inservice centers or university teacher centers, will all benefit from this webinar.
