Are you considering the use of online delivery to provide training to teachers? Are you concerned with quality standards and choosing a model of high-quality OPD that is effective in terms of resources, convenience, and impact? Are you or your colleagues challenged with decisions about the implementation of Common Core?
Arizona Department of Education staff will discuss the e-Learning for Educators Consortium as their solution in meeting Common Core training needs for Arizona teachers. They will discuss the benefits of the e-Learning online professional development (OPD) courses and the systematic development and delivery of a comprehensive, coordinated e-Learning program, as well as the challenges as they build capacity and begin to offer OPD e-Learning courses. Lynne Meeks, e-Learning for Educators Project Director at Alabama Public Television, will moderate the presentation.
The e-Learning for Educators Consortium evolved from the e-Learning for Educators (eFE) project, which determined that high-quality OPD could indeed produce improvements in teacher quality and student achievement. You can find out more in our webinar about the studies and the model. The eFE model has been implemented in states and through regional inservice centers in states. This model is also equally adaptable to districts and can be especially effective at the district level.
This webinar is targeted to state, and district administrators as well as professional development providers, such as regional inservice centers or university teacher centers.
About e-Learning for Educators
The e-Learning for Educators(eFE) project began with a two-fold effort – to establish a nimble, sustainable system of OPD and to determine whether high-quality OPD could indeed produce improvements in teacher quality and student achievement. After six years of evaluation and four research trials, the collective findings present a compelling case that participation in high-quality online professional development courses can positively affect teacher content knowledge and teaching practices that translate into improvements on targeted student outcomes. These research and evaluation findings are the backbone of the .
e-Learning for Educators(eFE) (2005-2011) was funded by a Ready to Teach grant to Alabama Public Television (APT) from the US Department of Education. Ten states’ Departments of Education and public television stations participated in the project that provided OPD courses to more than 45,000 teachers over six years.
The e-Learning for Educators Consortium is a post-grant, ongoing membership organization that was formed among state departments of education, public television stations and other educational agency partners to replicate and continue the work established in the eFE project. Partners in the membership group share resources such as training efforts, OPD courses, and other assets created during the grant period as well as assets that are being created post-grant among consortium members. The Consortium, coordinated by APT, is a strong collaboration among members who consider and discuss common challenges and often find common answers.
