This project’s purpose is to gather data to inform the creation of an online classroom for STEM teachers utilizing the adult learning theory method. This is an important topic because the enhanced education of the teaching force helps to improve the quality of education received at the K-12 level. The goal of this project will be to understand what makes a successful online classroom experience for K-12 STEM educators, and ultimately create a prototype online module. To accomplish this goal, I will learn how to create, distribute, and analyze a survey, conduct interviews of online instructors, and utilize this knowledge to create a prototype.
