1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Eastern Time
Gathering educators for professional development is an important part of our work, but how does that happen when online interaction is our only option? What online platform works best? How much screen time is too much? How do we get teachers to engage in dialogue and share ideas? How do we make online professional development engaging and interactive? This workshop will present examples from several organizations who reimagined their summer 2020, in-person professional development in online formats. Panelists will share what worked about their online sessions and what lessons they learned.
