Abstract

This paper is a report on the findings of a descriptive qualitative case study focused on the development of a new online Special Education endorsement for practicing teachers. It provides evidence, from a sociocultural view, that program leaders negotiate policies in different ways and their narrative, how they talked about and engaged with program development, depended on their role in the development of the online program. The study found that the key subjects, or individuals working to design and develop the online endorsement were not following an established method for online course development. Nor were they following an established way to think about or frame the policy changes that the new online endorsement might require. This led to a compartmentalized approach that left important items and policies unattended to.
