This brief paper presents a work-in-progress research study aimed at investigating how selected secondary English teachers describe their experiences organizing and facilitating online professional development opportunities for their peers at a distance. Framed by scholarship problematizing traditional, top-down teacher professional development and research detailing the value of self-directed online participation as professional development, the qualitative research project described here is intended to help build an understanding of English language arts teachers’ experiences creating and leading voluntary online professional development opportunities for fellow teachers.
