Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis paper is intended to promote understanding about effective online professional development interventions used to build the capacity of teachers as online educators, as well as examine the potential impact that online professional development might have on teaching practice. This research reports on a case study of an online professional development (ePD) program offered by Innovative Learning Services, a program within the Calgary Board of Education. This research highlights the experiences of 352 educators who have taken part in this program over the last three years. The initial research findings, based on interviews with program developers and a survey of program participants, will be presented with respect to the impact the ePD program had on teaching practice in hybrid or online environments.
