POssible research questions:
Due to the increasing prevalence of Learning Management Systems (LMS) in K-12 schools in Australia and their use in delivery of online learning (virtual, blended/hybrid/flipped) the following questions have been developed to guide the planned intervention for this proposal:
- Can an online course, implemented through the use of a Learning Management System (LMS) and modelling best practice, help to increased teachers’ self efficacy about using a LMS to develop worthwhile and engaging online learning experiences for students?
- Can an LMS be used to develop and engage teachers in an online Community of Practice?
- Do teachers demonstrate a preference for individual or collaborative learning when working through a LMS professional development course?
- To what extend can explicit online professional development, supported by a Community of Practice, impact upon individual teachers’ pedagogy and classroom practice?
- Statement of the Problem
- Literature Review
