The goal of the
Advancing Biology Education through Online Professional Development
(ABE-NY) study is to investigate what teachers gain from online
professional development and whether it impacts student learning.
Teachers in the ABE-NY
study took an online professional development course created by PBS
Teachers’ Domain about teaching the topics of genetics and evolution in
high school biology courses.
Development Center is working in partnership with PBS TeacherLine New
York and Buffalo's public television station WNED to conduct the study.
