August webinar

Building Community in a Remote Learning Environment
Aug 7, 2020 02:00 PM EDT, 1:00 PM CDT, 12:00 PM MDT, 11:00 AM PDT
A sense of belonging and community is still critical to ensure that students remain engaged and enthusiastic while being in a remote learning environment.  Students may be accustomed to find a sense of belonging from interactions with their peers and classmates in a physical classroom setting. As instruction is delivered virtually, students may likely feel less connected, uncertain, or distracted in their new learning environment.  Creating a virtual community is just as important for remote learning as it is in a physical classroom.  In this webinar suggestions will be given which can help educators reestablish a sense of belonging for their students.
