Abstract

Online teacher professional development (oTPD) is being seen as an opportunity for teachers to explore online learning while engaging with professional development activities at a distance. The context of this pilot study is an online educator’s community developed to support technology professional development activities at a distance. This paper presents the findings of the pilot study that initiated a design based research program intended to develop a model of oTPD within social networking software. The oTPD unit of participation introduced in this paper is the Courselet: a content focused unit of professional development delivered within a social networking site. Findings of this pilot study indicate Courselet components, such as peer discussions, video exemplars, and identification of online resources, have value for teachers participating in the oTPD activities. As this paper presents the first report stemming from an oTPD design based research program, an initial oTPD design-delivery model is presented.
