In this free 2-day webinar, experienced instructors and staff from Stanford Online High School provided advice and strategies for coping with some of the prevalent obstacles facing those new to online pedagogy in 2020. The webinar addressed such challenges as student engagement and discussion (including for large groups, breakout rooms, and hybrid groups), effective communication with students and parents, assessment and curriculum adaptation for online pedagogy, and strategies for supporting both students and yourselves.

Day 1 focused on classroom-related topics, and Day 2 focuses on student support, strategies for communicating with parents, and self-care. The last half hour of each session was devoted to Q&A so that attendees can get some of their specific questions answered. Free and open to instructors specifically for grades 7-12, although elementary and college instructors may attend.
