Session Overview

Who is this webinar for?

Principals, instructional leaders, and teaching teams who are transitioning to distance learning for students and/or teachers. 

How does virtual professional learning differ from learning that happens in person?

Maybe not as much as you think! The goals and components of strong learning are largely the same regardless of format. We hope we can help you draw from your strengths and build on what is already working. Based on the research and our own experiences, we’ve identified four principles for inclusive virtual learning

  1. Content is grounded in context and students’ needs
  2. Outcomes spark changes in practice and assessments reveal progress
  3. Experiences invite learners to take ownership
  4. Identities and strengths are included and affirmed

This webinar will give you four concrete practices to use in your design and facilitation.

Want More Learning?

​For centuries, educators have experimented with different learning tools, techniques, curricula, and strategies to help students learn. Not all of them are backed by research.

That’s why Leading Educators partnered with the Learning Agency to get the science of learning into the hands of teachers. We share six strategies as well as videos of real educators using them in practice.
