Online Professional Development for Educators
June 1-25, 2004, on the GKD Discussion List
How to Join the Discussion
Expanding and improving education are crucial to reducing poverty. Yet developing countries face tight financial and logistic constraints to providing professional development to educators. Does online professional development offer viable options for easing those constraints? What approaches, tools, techniques are effective and cost-efficient? What are the "critical success factors"?
The USAID-funded DOT-COM Alliance, InterAction, and GKD invite you to participate in an online discussion, "Online Professional Development for Educators." These discussion will examine practical approaches to providing effective online professional training for educators. A White Paper citing the cases, projects, experience, success stories, and recommendations presented by discussion members will be widely circulated throughout the development community.
This online discussion follows presentations and discussions held on May 6, 2004 at AED's Academy Hall on the topic of Online Professional Development for Educators Presentations.
