Free Professional Development: Intro to Virtual Teaching

A high-quality virtual learning environment is different than creating a physical one. The interactions with students are digital, the ability to engage them is substantively varied, and creating assessments and homework that ensure students can learn the content is a significant challenge.

To transition to a virtual classroom, teachers and administrators need to acquire new skills and build a common language to earn trust. If you are prepared to continue improving your skills and abilities as a virtual instructor or administrator, this free training is a great place to start!
