The pandemic has altered how we practice and think about education at all levels. In this course for educators K-12, participants will attend the live, virtual sessions from the class Teaching Tips: Virtual Class (Summer 2020) or view the recorded sessions and, along with the assignments in this course, will:
- Consider in what ways the pandemic provides a teachable moment that can be explored in all subject areas: math, science, social studies, health, and more.
- Understand more fully the potential for trauma and the importance of paying attention to their own and their students’ emotional well-being.
- Discuss how they may continue to use distance learning tools once school starts in Fall 2020.
- Reflect on how the challenges in distance teaching & learning (such as student engagement, what, and how much of a subject can be effectively covered) can be addressed or cause us to re-imagine our assumptions about teaching and learning.
All reading will be done online.
IMPORTANT: Registrants for this course cannot also be awarded hours for the Teaching Tips: Virtual class, due to the overlap in content between both offerings.

- Learned to detect signs of trauma in their students and some early intervention strategies.
- Assessed how facts about the pandemic and its economic and social impact can be integrated into their teaching.
- Enhanced their skills with distance learning tools.
- Considered in what ways the assumptions underlying modern education may be changing.
This class was just what I needed to prepare for online teaching into the fall. I liked the variety of sessions, from virtual teaching tools to social/emotional learning to trauma-informed teaching. The Zoom sessions were lively, and it was great to take time to discuss further in breakout rooms. Thanks so much, and keep up the good work!
