The objective of this study is to evaluate a nationwide implemented teacher professional development program in Taiwan. The program is designed to provide teachers with the skills to effectively integrate information and communication technology (ICT) into the existing curriculum. We investigated the effectiveness of the training program and its impacts on the participated teachers and their schools. The evaluation framework is based on Kirkpatrick's Four Levels Training Evaluation Model. The evaluation results showed that the majority of the participated teachers were satisfied with the training program and considered it would help them effectively integrating ICT into their instruction. It also showed that a high percentage of the teachers had been doing more ICT related activities in teaching preparation, in conducting classroom activities, and in interacting with colleagues since completing the training.
