The pandemic teaching of mid-2020 was not a true depiction of distance learning, but rather it was crisis teaching. With dramatic shifts in the way that we are teaching and learning today, one thing that remains unchanged is the inherent power in every educator to teach for engagement and impact in any setting. We are now utilizing distance learning, whether fully or in hybrid models, to get on with schooling. The field is learning about what works and what doesn’t at breakneck speed.
Join KS MTSS and Alignment and Corwin for a Distance Learning Playbook Institute welcoming renowned educators and co-authors of the Distance Learning Playbook series, Dr. Douglas Fisher, Dr. Olivia Amador-Valerio and Dr. Dominique Smith as we explore the Distance Learning Playbooks for Teachers and School Leaders.
In the Distance Learning Playbook for Teachers strand, presented by Dr. Oliva Amador-Valerio, participants will have the opportunity to prepare and plan for distance learning with purpose and intent—using what works best to accelerate students’ learning all the while maintaining an indelible focus on equity. Harnessing the wisdom and evidence of VISIBLE LEARNING® research to understand what works best with distance learning, sessions will include topics from teacher-student relationships, teacher credibility and clarity and instructional design. In the afternoon, participants will dive deeper into assessment, grading and feedback. The link between feedback and assessment is vital – feedback is the connective tissue in the assessment system. Participants will examine formative and summative tools to measure progress and achievement for strategic decision-making and taking actions for next steps. Teachers will leave the sessions with evidence-based strategies to deliver high-impact learning in any setting. Participants will also receive an eBook of the Distance Learning Playbook, Grades K-12.
