Over the course of the last several years a debate has ensued over the effectiveness of online instruction versus its more traditional face-to-face counterpart. Does professional development, delivered strictly online, have the same impact as professional development delivered in a face-to-face format? The principal of a large urban high school conducted a professional development course for teachers to increase the level of proficiency and Internet usage of his teachers. The course was offered in two formats - online and face-to-face. A survey was conducted before and after the course to determine the difference, if any, in the effect of the two methods of delivery. This paper will explore the difference between two methods of delivery of professional development – online and face-to-face.
