Currently, there is a great deal of interest by school districts, educational software companies, teachers and others in providing staff development through the Internet. While research findings in this area are only now beginning to appear, a great deal can be learned from the “pioneers” in this area, including course developers, facilitators and participants. After designing and facilitating several online staff development components as well as from participating in some, the staff of a statewide technology resource center for educators began to document “lessons learned” from their experiences. In addition, a thorough literature review was conducted to validate these lessons and identify additional lessons. Online course developers, facilitators, and participants were surveyed to validate the lessons and to add additional ones. The result is a document, available in both hard copy and online, which delineates over 200 lessons learned in online staff development from three different perspectives.
