Abstract

A needs assessment was performed to identify the training needs of teachers, site facilitators, and other team members involved in distance learning projects. Rossett's (1991) model was used for the initial research design. Additional considerations such as unintended outcomes and alternative viewpoints were included as the study progressed. Lack of familiarity with distance education technologies, lack of access to phone lines, and lack of training in methods and strategies for using telecommunications media are major problem areas. Appropriate training is desired by most teachers and site facilitators and by some support personnel and administrators. In response to these identified needs, a Professional Development Certificate in Distance Education is now being developed by the University of Colorado in cooperation with the Technology Academy of Denver Public Schools.
