In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the forced closure of most schools, BetterLesson is providing engaging, small-group learning experiences that support teachers and leaders in making the shift to distance learning. Throughout the month of April, we are hosting no-cost virtual sessions meant to help you address the evolving needs of students and staff during this unprecedented time.
Leading Through Change: Refining Your Approach to Distance Learning
Join distance learning experts and leaders from across the country for a collaborative planning experience designed to provide a framework and tools tailored to the needs of your staff for improving distance learning instruction. Participants will unpack the four pillars of distance learning, understand what educators need to be successful in this new context, and leave with an actionable guide, including tools and resources.
Student-Centered Culture: Building the Concept of Community at Distance
This virtual learning session is designed to help educators understand how to create a safe, inclusive learning environment when teaching from a distance. Educators will define culture and community in a distance setting, explore examples, and build an actionable plan for fostering a student-centered remote learning environment.
What is a BetterLesson Virtual Event?
A BetterLesson Virtual Event is like a digital PLC, meant to facilitate the sharing of ideas and best practices amongst a small group of 15-20 participants. These online learning environments are facilitated by instructional experts trained in virtual facilitation, who tailor the event to the expressed needs of participants.
How are these virtual events different from a traditional webinar?
Unlike most webinars, our Virtual Events are interactive experiences during which you will be asked to answer questions in polls, contribute to verbal discussions, and type in shared documents. Come prepared to engage with others and actively participate in a virtual discussion. Due to the nature of the this learning format, be ready to be on camera and use the functionality of a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet.
