We are in a new era of education because of what is going on in the world around us. As a result, educators must contend with two critical issues of our time: effective pedagogies for virtual teaching and meaningful ways to provide equity and social justice in our classrooms. To meet the needs these issues present to leaders in North Carolina, NCSLA is presenting four webinars this fall to provide professional learning opportunities on these topics. Two of the webinars will investigate the challenges inherent in distance learning and will present pedagogy to effectively meet those challenges. The other two webinars will take a hard look at ways in which equity and social justice can be addressed and incorporated into the classroom.

Join us virtually and hear from top Science Educators in North Carolina sharing the ways and means to remote learning in a virtual classroom and addressing diversity and equity during distance learning.

REMOTE LEARNING TO SUPPORT
NC EDUCATORS


The Friday Institute recently partnered with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to provide professional learning opportunities for educators in support of their transition to remote learning during the COVID-19 crisis.
Through the Remote Learning for NC Educators project, over the course of six weeks, sixty-one sessions across eight focus areas engaged over 13,500 educators.

Though the Remote Learning Support webinar series is no longer synchronous, the content is still relevant and can be helpful to educators in schools and districts as they prepare for future remote learning plans. Reflective questions have been developed for each session to support professional learning network/community conversations and school and district professional development capacity building. These guiding questions can be located on each session page along with recordings and additional season materials.

The materials utilized during sessions are deeply grounded in the Instructional Principles for Remote Teaching & Learning, which are intended to acknowledge that teachers and students have a varying range to access of devices and the Internet.

Recordings and resources from session can be found by clicking on the session title.

See the Focus Areas below. If interested in exploring any of these Areas, click HERE to access the resources.
