This final report describes accomplishments and activities of the North Carolina Partnership Training System Distance Education Project, a 3-year federally supported project to establish a distance education personnel development program to prepare more qualified and certified teachers for students with behavioral and/or emotional handicaps (BEH), or learning disabilities (LD). Major programmatic features included: (1) collaborative training partnerships among six state universities and the State Department of Public Instruction; (2) development of six online courses leading to certification; (3) a student enrollment and assistance system; and (4) a performance-based approach to instruction. Approximately 169 to 225 participants became eligible for certification in LD and/or BEH. Appendices comprise most of the document and include: participant and expert course evaluations; a paper on student perceptions of distance learning; examples of forms, letters, and flyers used; summaries of advisory board meetings; examples of subcontracts; course syllabi; examples of online course projects; and course documents including lecture notes and online discussion forums.
