EDUCATION: Techniques for Coping with The New Normal (This course is now closed)

Course No. ED473l, ED573l

(This course is now closed.  We are no longer accepting registrations)

The pandemic has had a significant impact on our educational structure, going from a brick-and-mortar classroom to teach with a drive toward digitization through creating virtual classrooms. Educators were required to adopt a new educational model of teaching and adapt to it quickly, thus creating a new normal, a combination of virtual, hybrid, and brick-and-mortar classrooms. In this exciting course, you will learn from experienced teachers who have developed techniques for coping with the new normal.  Participants will attend the live virtual sessions from the course Teaching Tips: For Educators on The Front Line (Spring 2021) or view the recorded session along with completing the assignments in this course.

This course is appropriate for teachers K-12.

Course dates and times:
April 5th – 16th, 2021
