Professional Development School (PDS) partnerships offer a powerful leverage point for the improvement of student learning in the K-12 sector and a unique opportunity to experiment with new forms of online learning for the adults who work in and with schools. In this paper we present lessons learned in the design and delivery of online courses to teacher educators, classroom teachers, support personnel, and student teachers associated with the Virtual Professional Development School Consortium. We describe the NetSeminar model that is evolving through this work, and consider strategies and implications for replication.
