The public health crisis posed by the Coronavirus has many schools rapidly shifting to online learning. As educators navigate new technologies and platforms, we need to create the conditions for distance learning to thrive. Join Facing History and Ourselves and special guest Justin Reich, director of the MIT Teaching Systems Lab, to explore strategies and approaches to creating community and sustaining student-centered learning in a digital environment. We’ll consider the challenges of creating an equitable digital experience, share strategies for nurturing your classroom learning community, and consider promising practices to engage students in inquiry, reflection and discussion both online and off-screen.
Live captioning will be provided during this webinar, which takes place from 7–8pm EST. If this time doesn’t work for your schedule, be sure to register and we’ll notify you once the recording is available on our On-Demand Learning Center.
You will be eligible to receive one-hour of professional development credit for participation if you actively watch the webinar. At the conclusion of the webinar, you will be able to download a certificate of completion from the webinar console. Check with your school district in advance of the webinar to ensure that the professional development credit is accepted.
