Webinar: Connecting and Communication with your Students During Challenging Times

The foundation for a healthy, creative, and vibrant classroom is the connection and communication between the teacher and student. In the challenging contexts of remote and hybrid learning, fostering personal connections with students can be tough, but it is more necessary than ever. This webinar will review the research and methods suited for connecting with students during hybrid and remote learning. Research and methods applicable for the elementary, middle, and high school levels will be shared and modeled.
