Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Online Teacher Development Works Best - 15 Reasons Why

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Online Teacher Development Works Best - 15 Reasons Why | Changing Discourse | Scoop.it

I've started this article with quite a bold statement, but it's a conclusion that I have been coming too over the course of quite a few years now. I should really put this into context though, as most of the teacher training I do deals with pedagogical training for the use of technology and is most often delivered during intensive face to face sessions, usually with groups of teachers working in a computer lab. Though, having said that, I do still believe that many of the reasons I have listed below do also apply to other kinds of more 'mainstream' teacher development too, especially intensive courses.
