Better Than a Webinar: How to Facilitate Interactive Online PD
Now more than ever, teachers do not have any spare time to waste. Make sure their professional learning is time well-spent by facilitating high-quality interactive experiences-- even in virtual settings!
How can you engage teachers in meaningful active learning? How can you support equity of voice and make sure every participant feels included? How can teachers leave your Zoom session feeling energized and connected? Go beyond the basic, one-way webinar and transform virtual professional development (PD) into an engaging, inclusive experience. Join us to explore the principles and strategies behind good online PD.
During the workshop, we will model concrete strategies that you can apply to your own virtual PD facilitation. You will participate in some active learning, then reflect and discuss with fellow professional development providers. You will leave with a set of tools to bring your online PD facilitation to the next level.
