About this session
Community and school culture are at the heart of the adaptability and fluidity needed, as teachers, parents and students weather the unique challenges in this COVID-19 time. Collaboration among these team members may garner some rich rewards. Growing skills in teaching and learning design can lead to student creation and more rigorous learning. The goal is a partnership between student and teacher in designing lessons that foster student ownership of their learning. A design with this foundation will undergird the fluid movement between online and face-to-face learning.
Join us for a conversation with members of the Rice Education community as they discuss how they address these challenges and more.
