SREB developed the nation’s first Standards for Quality Online Teaching, which define the qualifications of a quality online teacher and the standards needed for academic preparation, content knowledge, online skills and delivery. Building on those standards, these Guidelines for Professional Development of Online Teachers can assist state virtual schools as they hire, train, support and evaluate online teachers. The content and strategies suggested in the guidelines are based on the skills and knowledge essential for high-quality online teaching and describe the support that state virtual schools should provide for their online teachers.
