Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to share the lessons learned from facilitating a Web-based professional development course for K-12 educators. Offered in Spring 2001, Using the WWW in the K-12 Classroom was the pilot course of a newly developed Professional Development Series offered by a university located in the Appalachian region. The course was co-facilitated by an assistant professor at the host university and a part-time faculty member. The shared experience of facilitating a course at a distance brought up many issues about the role of the instructor and communication between instructor and student. The instructors intend to share their reflective study of these issues and other lessons learned to provide further insight into successful facilitation of Web-based distance education courses.
