Collaborative professional learning can be a primary lever for improved educator practice and increased student results. In this course, one of a 3-part collaborative series, educators will increase their professional capacity to meet the 3 key needs of students during this pandemic: well-being, engagement, feedback. As a member of a cohort PLC discussion group, participants in this class will reflect on the effectiveness of their instruction and resources to meet the critical needs of students during the pandemic. Using on-line video conferencing technology, the PLC will conclude by participating in a coaching conversation facilitated by the course instructor that will provide a perfect face-to-face platform for self-reflection, idea sharing, and a determination about the impact on their future professional practice.
Students may take this course during any of the following cohort dates:
October 19 – November 9
November 9 – November 30
November 30 – December 21
