Rural Creativity: A Study of District Mandated Online Professional Development
Summerville, Jennifer; Johnson, Cynthia Steve
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v14 n2 p347-361 Apr 2006
In the spring of 2002, a rural school district in the Midwest implemented an online staff development program. As a part of this program, every educator at the middle and secondary education level was required to complete one online course of his or her choice. A survey was conducted to analyze the positive outcomes and considerations for further professional development. Rationale behind the need for such programs, successes/failures, and prescriptions for future research will be discussed.
