    Hi, everyone! I am interested in the Community of Inquiry as a topic for my dissertation. I want to do a professional development module with a group of 9-12 grade online teachers on the Community of Inquiry. I then plan to survey them (and a group that didn’t receive the training) to determine if their self-efficacy and their effectiveness for teaching online improved. Dr. Garrison and Dr. Dyjur directed me here. I have two questions:

    1. Do you have any material that you could share or would recommend for professional development?
    2. Do you have a validated tool to measure teacher effectiveness after they have received the training on CoI?

    Thank you for your time and help!

      Hi Kyleigh,

      I’m in a bit different boat from you, but we are likely travelling in the same direction…

      I’m developing a PD series for online faculty in higher ed based on the CoI. I’d like to develop 3 self-paced courses (4-5 weeks each) with each one focussed on a different ‘presence’. I’m in the very early stages of development, but you can have a look at what I’m doing at

      I’d be interested in chatting more with you about what materials you find and especially if you find a validated measurement tool (that seems like a tall order…).

      All the best,
