The Florida Online Reading Professional Development (FOR-PD) is a large scale, online professional development project designed to assist K-12 teachers in gaining a thorough understanding of scientifically-based reading research as the foundation of comprehensive instruction. The FOR-PD project is funded by the Florida Department of Education and housed at the University of Central Florida. FOR-PD has been providing services to over 25,000 educators across the state of Florida. FOR-PD services all 67 school districts, seven state universities, and six community colleges in Florida. In this session the presenters will share information about the infrastructure, development, support systems, means of follow-up, successes, challenges, and lessons learned associated with this large-scale (and high-stakes) online professional development project.
