Professional development budgets are tighter than ever as a result of the economy, forcing educational organizations to do more with less. As professional development for educators shifts from strictly face-to-face meetings to more online and blended (a combination of face-to-face and online) methods of delivery, professional development providers must build capacity to deliver quality online and blended PD. As technology evolves at a rapid pace, teachers need professional development to effectively engage students with emerging new technologies in the classroom. With states’ voluntary adoption of internationally-benchmarked Common Core standards, teachers need professional development that supports the transition to instruction aligned to new standards and assessments.
