This paper is intended to promote understanding about effective online professional development interventions that work to build the capacity of teachers as online educators, as well as examine the potential impact that online professional development might have on teaching practice. This presentation reports on a case study of an online professional development (ePD) program offered by Innovative Learning Services, a program within the Calgary Board of Education. It highlights the experiences of 500 educators who have taken part in the virtual professional development activities in the last three years. It will also convey some of the initial findings with respect to impact on teaching practice in hybrid learning environments.
