Online and Blended Instruction Workshop
You asked, we delivered. Learn how to offer quality instruction in any setting in our new online workshop.
Join us for a new national professional development workshop — Engaging Students in a Blended Instructional World — that helps educators like you adapt your content for any delivery format. Gain the skills and confidence you need to plan and deliver high-quality instruction face-to-face, online or in a blended setting.
Five 2.5-hour sessions will target the essential tech tools and instructional strategies you need to provide equitable access to engaging online learning experiences for every student, including special education students and English language learners.
Educators of grades six through 12 in any curricular area — literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts or career and technical education — will benefit from this workshop!
No need for a tech upgrade. Use your own devices and learning management system.
