Webinar: Can Web 2.0 Save Teacher Professional Development?

Barbara Treacy and Christopher Sessums (2009)

Event Description: The rise of interactive technology has created exciting new possibilities for teacher professional development, from facilitated online courses to social-learning communities to live multimedia presentations. Many observers now believe that, when used effectively, digital technologies could ultimately break the grip of the one-shot, drive-by workshop in schools and spur the growth of teacher-learning opportunities that are truly collaborative and job-embedded. Yet many questions remain. In this webinar, two experts will address these questions and bring you up to date on the latest ideas and trends in online teacher learning and how you can take advantage of them.
