This case study explores the ongoing development of an online instructor training program, initiated in Spring 2002. Involvement of the learner-instructors (professional development instructors learning to teach online) in the design and development of this online instructor training program was key to its overall success. Significant outcomes of the program include a core group of experienced and highly dedicated online instructors, a new model for continuous professional development and support, and the formation of an active and dynamic learning community.
