The Impact of Convenience on Saudi Teachers and Supervisors for Using Online Professional Development in Saudi Arabia


Ali Suwayid Alqarni†


Vol. 22  No. 3  pp. 389-395


This quantitative study explored the extent to which convenience enhances professional development (PD) online. The sample of the study consisted of 421 teachers and supervisors. Findings evinced that convenience stimulated online PD. Another salient finding is the absence of significant differences among participants' responses concerning position and gender. Nonetheless, a significant difference exists in the variable of teaching experience. Teachers with more than 26-year experience were motivated to use online PD, which evidently could be attributed to the convenience they had over teachers with fewer years of experience.
