TEACHING IN THE CONCURRENT CLASSROOM: A HYBRID TEACHING WORKSHOP

As more and more districts prepare to bring students back on campus in a hybrid format, this course is designed to prepare teachers to teach students in both in-person and digital settings. This course is influenced by leading educational thinkers with a focus on EdTech tools that show proven impact on learning. Opportunities to collaborate with fellow colleagues will foster a culture of sharing, constructive feedback and lead to innovative ideas. We will focus on models of blended learning that allow teachers to maximize their face-to-face time with students while encouraging interaction between students. Finally, we will demonstrate how tech tools can help increase their efficiency in terms of communication, providing feedback and create engaging asynchronous lessons.
