A Facilitator's Guide to Online Professional Development: Establishing Communities of Learning and Cultures of Thinking

This guide helps clarify the knowledge, attitudes, practices, and skills used by exemplary online professional development facilitators & those who maintain focus on their learners and assess their current and future needs to match the curve of their learning. The approach offers research-based, practical strategies applicable to a number of online situations and settings. The authors believe that online learning communities organized around collaborative inquiry and collective problem solving allow learners to be co-creators of knowledge within a risk-free, trusting environment.
