Abstract

There is a growing interest in ongoing and just-in-time professional development (PD) opportunities that are delivered online for teachers who are implementing new curricula. We report on our efforts to build a multi-approach ongoing, online PD program that responds to teachers’ emergent needs while implementing GlobalEd 2 (www.globaled2.com), a multi-state, middle school, social studies curriculum. From a pilot study of 16 teachers, we develop metrics for identifying the levels of teacher participation in the ongoing PD program within two online spaces: weekly email bulletins and online journals. 315 students taught by these teachers responded to pre and post assessments on affective interest and confidence scales related to science and social studies. Data from this analysis suggest that differences in the level of participation in the ongoing PD program are related to student affective learning outcomes.
