    • SREB Guidelines for Professional Growth of Online Teachers: although designed for online teachers of SREB state virtual schools, many of the standards for professional growth are adaptable and useful for higher education teachers as well. In fact, some of the resources used for this document were actually gleaned from documents for higher education. The standards for what the SREB state virtual schools should do or provide should be related to what the University, schools, or programs should do for the online instructors to help ensure student learning success.
