Abstract

The Lesley University Online Technology in Education Program serves K-12 educators worldwide. The retention rate is nearly 100%. A research study was conducted to explore the high student satisfaction rate and provide answers to the following questions: What factors contribute to effective pedagogy in online instruction? How can successful instructional strategies be scaled up as a program grows? and How can instructors use time efficiently while maintaining high quality instruction and interaction? Surveys, interviews, and observations were used to gather data. The analysis of the findings produced helpful information and sometimes surprising conclusions that will be shared in this session.
