e-Learning for Educators Initiative

e-Learning for Educators logoThe e-Learning for Educators Initiative is a federally funded program seeking to establish an effective and sustainable model of online professional development that will help address state-wide teacher quality needs and have an impact on student achievement in eight partner states. Part of this initiative involves conducting four large-scale randomized experiments in 4th grade English Language Arts (ELA), 5th grade Mathematics, 7th grade ELA, and 8th grade Mathematics. inTASC is conducting these studies designed to examine the impact of online professional development on teacher knowledge, teacher practices, and, most importantly, student achievement. The research study is now complete. Findings will be published as they become available.

 

Partner Organizations

Each state participating in the e-Learning for Educators Initiative has a state leadership team consisting of staff from the state department of education and a partner public broadcasting station. Additionally, the Education Development Center (EDC), the Center for Study of Testing, Evaluation, and Educational Policy (CSTEEP), and the Technology and Assessment Study Collaborative (inTASC) at Boston College are providing support in the areas of implementation and evaluation. At right is a list of links to all participating partner organizations.
