Rebooting School Seminar
Time & Location
About the Event
Educators and students have experienced unusual pressures and uncertainties this year. This seminar will better equip you to navigate the months ahead as vaccinations become more prevalent, summer approaches, and schools start to anticipate a return to normalcy.
The seminar begins with a whole-group mini-session for an overview of the state of schooling after 12 months of pandemic learning. Then, participants will choose from three classes from a selection of six options, rotating every 20 minutes.
The seminar ends with a concluding mini-session to summarize alternatives for moving forward and find inspiration. You will leave with a broader perspective of the options and new clarity on which steps to prioritize based on your individual needs and circumstances.
