Abstract

To increase enrollment in a graduate course, an online version was developed and initially offered in Fall 2007. Because the students were classroom teachers who appreciated frequent interaction with colleagues and the instructor, the course incorporated a discussion forum that required students to comment on each other’s reactions to journal articles, teaching experiences, and reflections. As the semester progressed, it became obvious that they were forming supportive, encouraging, and facilitative relationships with each other, an experience that was validated by their course evaluation comments. In addition, the purpose for taking the course varied per educator. The curriculum was tailored to allow the students to progress through the course and select options that would provide them with foundational experience to accomplish any of their individual goals: writing a professional journal manuscript, presenting at a professional conference, developing a grant proposal, conducting action research, or pursuing a unique project of their choice.
