Lowell Univ., MA.
This research project was designed to evaluate the synergistic effects of linking workshops for science teachers with electronic conferencing. The rationale for this study was that these two methods of professional development and communication would have an impact beyond that which either would have alone. Included are the abstract, a description of the workshops and computer conferencing, evaluation, a discussion of the relationship between workshops and computer conferencing as professional development tools for teachers of science, the conclusion, recommendations, and a description of project products.
