Key Instructional Strategies in Support of a Community of Learners in an Online Master’s Program Directed Toward Developing Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Save to My Collections
This qualitative, design-based research examined the instructional strategies designed to engage a virtual community of learners in an online Master’s degree course focused on developing teachers’ technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) for teaching mathematics and science. This descriptive analysis of the various instructional strategies directed toward the identification of ‘best practices in online instruction’ was supported by the inservice teacher participants’ reflections and interviews on how the individual and collectives strategies supported their learning. Analysis of the collective strategies identified cognitive, social, and teaching presences existing in the virtual community of learners. The results resulted in recommendations for online course environments in science and mathematics education graduate coursework for meeting teachers’ TPACK educational needs in an online graduate environment.
