Abstract

This paper reports on the implementation of a World Wide Web site for teacher professional development which can address the shortcomings of typical face-to-face training. Results of a semester-long pilot project involving four high school and middle school mathematics teachers highlight three specific ways in which teachers can benefit from Web professional development: consistent opportunities for reflection and sharing; a shortened cycle for training, implementation and evaluation; and teacher empowerment through direct access to information. A tentative model of just-in-time professional development using the World Wide Web is introduced as a means of representing the complex dynamics of this learning environment.
