  12. 12.

  13. 13. Developed by team on behalf of the online program  a team of teachers, multimedia specialists, instructional designers  work for hire/contract Developed by the online teacher  hired to teach a non-existent course  course developed throughout semester
  14. 14. Copyright  who owns the content?  what happens if teacher leaves? Expertise/Training  “more than 31% of teachers reported receiving no training in online lesson design” (Rice & Dawley,2007, p. 26)  to create one hour of training it took 43 hours for instructor-led, 79 hours for basic e-learning, 184 hours for interactive e-learning, and 490 hours for advanced e-learning (Chapman Alliance, 2010) Lack of Research to Guide Practice  studies have focused on unreliable and invalid measures  primary data has been teacher and developer perceptions  no open access research-based standards
  15. 15. Similar to classroom-based teaching, with differences  time management, creation of materials, understanding current technology and working with a student one-on-one (Kearsley & Blomeyer, 2004)  work differently to have positive communication and assessments, using non-verbal communication, time is needed for teachers to become comfortable with technology, shift occurring from teacher-centered to student- centered learning (Easton, 2003)
  16. 16. Online teaching is more work  CDLI class size limit (official & unofficial)  asynchronous instruction in particular Lack of reliable and valid empirical research  most research is based on teacher perceptions What is known about teacher training  learn online in order to teach online  works in team with teachers and a virtual school to construct the online course, etc.
  17. 17. Critical to the success of students  research has shown the presence of active facilitators increase student performance (Roblyer, Freeman, Stabler, & Schneidmiller, 2007)  a trained facilitator also has a positive impact on student performance (UNC-Chapel Hill) Facilitator should  monitor student activities  support students soft learning skills Facilitator should not  provide regular tutoring  provide significant or substantial technical assistance
  18. 18. Support for the facilitator  the allocation of one teaching per school for each 175 students to support the delivery of CDLI courses (Shortall & Greene-Fraize, 2007)  schools that had students participating in supplemental distributed learning were eligible to receive 0.125 of a full-time equivalent for the local or school-based support of their students engaged in distributed learning (Barbour, 2011)
  19. 19. Lack of professional development  less than 40% of online teachers reported to receiving any professional development before they began teaching online (Rice & Dawley, 2007) Lack of teacher preparation programs  less than 2% of universities in the United States provided any systematic training in their pre- service or in-service teacher education programs (Kennedy & Archambault, 2012)
