Barriers to Implementing Large-Scale Online Staff Development Programs for Teachers
Meyen, Edward L.; Yang, Chien Hui
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v6 n4 Win 2003
This study on barriers to online staff development for classroom teachers was conducted as part of the planning activities of a delivery models project designed to develop guidelines for implementing large-scale online staff development programs. The study involved engaging 54 general and special educators in several professional roles from nine states in a series of focus groups to identify the barriers to online staff development. An instrument was designed to rank order the barriers in terms of perceived significance. Twenty-two barriers were identified. This project was in follow-up to the Online Academy (H029K73002) funded by the Office of Special Education Programs in the U.S. Department of Education (OSEP/USDOE).
