Résumé: The panel session will focus on key topics and issues related to the use of e-Learning for teacher development. The international group of panelists includes chapter authors of a new book commissioned by UNESCO entitled Teacher Development in an E-Learning Age: A Policy and Planning Guide. The panelists bring differing perspectives on the dimensions of e-learning and the challenges, policy issues, opportunities and trends in the use of e-learning for teacher development in both developed and developing nations. Discussion will focus on four aspects of e-learning for teacher development including: accessing online resources; online courses and degree programs; blended learning environments; and networked communities. Panelists will share their diverse views of the global context and role of e-learning for teacher development and the challenge of preparing 15-35 million teachers needed in the next 15 years to meet UNESCO's Education for All goals.
