Distance Teaching and Remote Learning
During the Age of COVID-19
Many school teams and instructional leadership teams are providing professional development for teachers during COVID-19 mandated distance learning. It is critical that we support teachers to ensure that we minimize any learning loss for the most vulnerable students while continuing to promote instructional equity.
The two webinars housed here address these issues. The webinars were offered free to educators in the early weeks of distance learning.
Over 12,000 educators have viewed them. Now they are being offered for use as content for continued professional learning.
