The week will kick off with strategies to engage students whether they are sitting in front of you or joining from their home. Guest speakers will share recent research and applications of students with Mental Health concerns and what—educators
and students—struggled with most teaching during the summer months.
Each webinar is 30 minutes long, with a little extra time for questions. If you’re ready to jump into professional development now, take a look at new PD classes for Fall 2020.
