The burning questions

The Burning Questions…

When determining the design for a professional development model for teachers who will facilitate distance learning courses…

  • Can we encourage them to join or build a professional learning community? Can we provide that for them?

  • How can we approach the intellectual side and show concern for the emotional side of teaching and learning, making the transition into online pedagogy as easy and flexible as possible?

  • How do we not only track teachers’ participation in PD, but also track their progress in applying what they learn?

  • What is the role of the teacher in an online classroom when students can access just about any resource? Online or otherwise
