The research pertains to understanding how the participation in an online course that employs the project-based learning (PBL) approach influenced the teachers (n=55) perceptions of teachers' role in the digital age. Data were collected using questionnaires and reflective reports and were analyzed by using open content analysis. The findings showed that participants considered the personal, pedagogic, and social aspects important in terms of the teachers’ perceptions regarding their role in the digital age. The main conclusion is that teachers should be given access to a learning experience combining online learning and teaching practice to allow them to form their role perception as digital-age teachers. Practical implications of the research relate to teachers' socialization in the digital age.
