Mudd Talks: “How Teachers are Thinking About the Transition to Virtual Learning”

September 23, 2020 Add to Calendar

4:30–5:30 p.m.



In the spring, school systems shifted abruptly to provide emergency distance teaching. The task schools are now facing is considerably more complex: powerful, deliberate distance learning. As districts across the country begin the year in a virtual format, teachers are rapidly adjusting and updating their practices to meet the needs of learners over digital platforms. Join Zach Rogstad for a discussion on how teachers are adapting to the virtual environment and what considerations are being made as they strive to engage students in deep academic and social-emotional learning this fall.

This event is open to everyone. Students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and prospective students are welcome to join.
