Online/virtual programs and instruction in educational leadership necessitate the professional learning and development of the faculty who teach in them. In this chapter, the authors, who are developers of a fully online educational leadership program, contribute to this under-developed area of the literature. They use a game-changing analogy to explore possibilities for effective faculty development in technology-rich learning environments and, more broadly, a changing institutional and global context.
