Preparing for January and Beyond: Lessons from Remote Learning in Spring and Early Fall

Remote Learning Series

Wednesday, December 16 | 2:00 p.m. (CT)

COVID-19 impacted—and continues to impact—teaching and learning in many ways. While some had hoped we would return to some level of normalcy by fall 2020, educators are now preparing for a second wave that may take many schools back online for spring 2021. Even if there is a cure or vaccine and all schools return to face-to-face teaching and learning, many educators understand the need to capitalize on what remote teaching and learning taught us and how to continue to use technology to better prepare our teachers, better educate our students, and better engage our parents.

In this webinar aimed at K–12 teachers, Dr. Rick Ferdig will share lessons learned and best practices from both spring and fall 2020. Teachers will leave with newfound strategies to support their instruction and prepare them for a still uncertain spring.

From this webinar, teachers will gain an understanding of:

  1. Best practices to engage with parents and students in both synchronous and asynchronous formats
  2. Strategies that help them quickly navigate between online, blended, and face-to-face instruction
  3. Resources to help them stay connected for just-in-time learning regardless of changes to spring learning environments
