The expansion in online or virtual education opportunities for students in elementary and secondary grades continues at an astounding rate. The unprecedented explosion of online courses has resulted in increased demand for online teachers. Who are those teachers and how are they learning to teach online? The Going Virtual! research team recently completed a survey on the status of professional development trends for K-12 online teachers. The authors of this paper will review key findings from this phase of the three-phase series and outline the necessary steps in moving to the remaining phases of the series.
