The global COVID-19 pandemic has created the urgent need for quality online instruction throughout all levels of education. However, this pandemic has found teachers physically isolated within their homes, and unprepared for the challenging tasks of teaching online. Many of the challenges faced by teachers due to this isolation, are similar to those faced by teachers in remote areas around the world. One such issue, is the lack of access to traditional professional development opportunities, which could help them with their online teaching challenges during this period. Therefore, this study examines the potential of utilizing educational research for assisting teachers through this trying period of COVID-19.
