New-Teacher Induction 2.0

Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education Volume 28, Number 1, ISSN 2153-2974


The purpose of this program evaluation study was to design, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness of incorporating an online learning community as part of a comprehensive new-teacher induction program. The researcher, who serves as the middle school principal and new induction coordinator for the school district, used a mixed-method approach to collect and analyze the results of the study. First, the researcher created an online learning community model based on the results of a comprehensive review of literature and a previous year's pilot study. Next, the researcher implemented an online learning community in the form of a wiki. The study evaluated the implementation of the model through the perspectives of all the participants: new teachers and contributors (veteran teachers, principals, central office administrators, and professors from schools of education). The data (pre- and postsurveys, questionnaires, and focus-group sessions) revealed positive results for the new induction online learning community format. (Contains 9 tables and 3 figures.)
