This paper is an excerpt on the author’s doctoral study titled “Effects of Just-in-Time online training on knowledge and application of the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP®) Model among in-service teachers.” The specific focus of the report is on an aspect of the study, which sought to determine whether there was any statistically significant difference between learners who received Just-in-Time (JiT) versus those who received Just-in-Case (JiC) instruction. Results from the data analysis revealed no significant difference in knowledge or application skills between the JiT and JiC groups. However, there was an increase in learner application of SIOP® Model principles in classroom teaching, for both groups. JiT training did not emerge as a better training strategy than JiC training. The main benefit of the training delivered through this study seemed to be in increasing application and not knowledge.
