Survey: Online professional development booming with faculty

New survey reveals instructors' online PD preferences, trends in priorities.

Higher-ed instructors most often prefer to participate in online professional development (PD) opportunities that focus on training for online software and digital resources (34 percent), classroom management strategies (34 percent), and digital device training (33 percent), according to a new survey.

The 2016 Vision K-20 Professional Learning Survey Report is the ninth annual national K-20 educator survey from the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN) of SIIA, and also is the first survey focusing on online PD.

The study included responses from educators at two-year and four-year institutions.
