Evaluation of online educator training programs and their effects on instructors’ competency and achievement usually depend on post-training self-reported surveys.  However, most of these surveys assess the quality of the training and not necessarily the influence to change faculty practices.  Of interest was to identify an assessment method to evaluate the impact of the professional development program on online teaching practices, course design, and student behaviors. 

On this webinar, you'll learn how University of Missouri - Kansas City is using LMS data to determine the effectiveness of their training model for faculty teaching online. Implications of the research provide support for effective “data-driven” decision-making for individuals overseeing faculty professional development programs.
