I’m a huge fan of taking creative risks and trying something new. For this reason, I decided to do my first two live webinars this week. It was a truly energizing experience for me! Even though I’m an introvert, I loved the chance to connect and learn together. Below you’ll see links to the webinar replays and to the slideshows. I’ve also included information about a self-paced 2-week professional development course on empowering students in distance learning courses.

Webinar: Empowering Students in Distance Learning Environments

Educator Expertise: Beginning to Emerging

Description: Student engagement can be a real struggle when there is physical distance. However, the real issue isn’t simply a lack of engagement. It’s often a lack of self-direction. In other words, students aren’t taking the initiative with their own learning. In this webinar, we cover specific strategies for increasing self-direction and student ownership in distance learning classes. I’ll walk you through some specific strategies you can use in distance learning courses at the K-12 level. I also cover this topic in-depth in the upcoming professional development course on empowering students in distance learning .
