Description: PDF-format article. Abstract: Teacher professional development (TPD) in its current state is typically episodic, fragmented, and often not rewarding over the long haul. There is need for a more substantial and extensive core set of TPD experiences that focus on accountable, constructive engagement with both student learning and critical peer communities. The Math Forum @ Drexel University has created an online format for providing sustained TPD experiences and identifying potential teacher leaders in mathematics for leading future online communities in ongoing TPD.
