Online Academy: Content Validation through a Juror Process
Meyen, Edward; Bui, Yvonne N.
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v11 n3 p443-454 2003
The Online Academy (HO29K73002) was funded by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) to develop research-based online instructional modules in the content areas of reading, positive behavior support and technology across the curriculum. Targeted to preservice teacher education programs in Institutions of Higher Education (IHE), but also applicable to staff development, the modules were adopted for implementation by 162 institutions. This paper describes the juror process employed by the Academy to identify the research base, frame the content maps, and to validate the content. Sixteen national content experts served as jurors. A total of 75 lessons in 22 content rich online modules were developed, each approximately equivalent to a two-semester credit course. (Contains 1 table.)
