The Advancing Biology Education through Online Professional Development (ABE-NY) research study investigated what teachers gained from online professional development and whether it impacts student learning. The project was active between 2007 - 2012.
Teachers in the ABE-NY study took an online professional development course created by WGBH's Teachers’ Domain about teaching the topics of genetics and evolution in high school biology courses. PBS TeacherLine New York distributed the course.
