Deidre Le Fevre and Kaye Twyford will explain what adaptive expertise is, how it works, why it helps create change and improvement in complex learning environments, and how it can be applied in your own context.

Catlin Tucker will provide an overview of a blended learning coaching cycle designed to support teachers from goal setting to implementation to reflection.

Monday, March 9, 2020 - 3:30pm

Presented by Paul Emerich France

For teacher and consultant Paul France, at first technology-powered personalized learning seemed like a panacea.

Visible Learning for Social Studies: Designing Student Learning for Conceptual Understanding

Monday, April 20, 2020 - 3:30pm

Presented by Julie Stern

How do we maximize precious time to ensure that students grasp enough to prepare them for informed civic life? The discipline of social studies is far more than memorizing dates and facts. It involves the skillful ability to conduct investigations, analyze sources, place events in historical and cultural context, and synthesize various points of view, while recognizing our own biases. Join Julie Stern in this webinar to understand how using the right approach at the right time can maximize student learning.

One short year ago, Corwin’s Collective for EL Achievement began breaking down the walls that have for too long confined our multilingual learners, offering up nine essential shifts for delivering on our students’ promise. Then came COVID-19, which has only illuminated the long-standing systemic and societal inequities in place—most notably the Digital Divide. Now, the Collective is reconvening in an all-new webinar to share specific strategies for enacting the shifts in this very different teaching and learning climate.

Learning Happens When Students Question

Monday, May 10, 2021 - 3:30pm

Presented by Jackie Walsh

Student questions support visible learning by engaging students in authentic discussion and providing teachers feedback about where students are in their learning. Yet student questions are largely absent from most classrooms today. Join author Jackie Walsh to learn how to create an environment, cultivate mindframes, and intentionally design experiences to develop student capacity as skillful, purposeful questioners. This interactive session includes video clips spotlighting students using four question types—self-questions, academic, exploratory, and dialogic—to advance different learning outcomes and increase students’ ownership of their learning.
