Join two award-winning teacher-presenters with extensive experience in online and in-person environments as they explore with their participants the unique design considerations and challenges related to the delivery of professional development via webinar. During this hand-on workshop, teachers will get direct experience with a virtual classroom and all of the available tools that will help them maximize interaction and collaboration among their own participants. By the end of the workshop, teachers will have prepared, uploaded and delivered a short webinar that reflects the best practices for online professional development. Participants need to bring a laptop (not a tablet) and a headset microphone.
The workshop will be held on Friday, February 17 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.
