Abstract

Abstract: Since its creation in 2000 the Advanced Broadband Enabled Learning (ABEL) program has developed a blended learning service that enhances teacher and faculty professional practice and improves student achievement. Using award-winning methodology ABEL provides school districts and post secondary institutions with a collaborative platform, an instructional design approach for professional learning that uses information communications technologies (ICT), a proven implementation strategy and ongoing research and evaluation. While it continues to maintain its focus on transforming teacher and faculty practice through the use of broadband technology in schools, research into effective practices in delivering professional development and the impact of its implementation has led ABEL to centre attention more fully on the impact of job-embedded learning. This paper focuses on ABEL's program strategy for teacher training and professional growth and presents the lessons learned from seven years of successful implementation.
