Speaker: Tracey A. Benson, Ed. L.D., Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, Racial Equity Consultant, Author
Description: The COVID-19 global pandemic has presented our schools with many involuntary virtual learners and teachers. One pressing challenge with transitioning to 100% virtual learning is ensuring educational equity. With little unified, formal guidance from a central authority, many schools and school districts are looking for highly effective strategies to engage students equitably during this uncertain time. This workshop will provide educators with an understanding of how equity applies to virtual learning. Participants will be provided with high-yield strategies for increasing educational equity. Teachers and school leaders will also be given time to share best practice with one another across schools and school districts.
This workshop is free of charge for Massachusetts K-12 educators. There is a $100 fee for educators out of state. Please contact Lauren@mpyinc.org for more info.
