ISTE's Guide to Outstanding Online PD
Participate and share : Interactive lecture
Hosted by ISTE Professional Development. As we’ve shifted to do our jobs as educators in remote and blended settings, we’ve also needed to shift the ways we learn as professionals. Online professional development can be a great opportunity to grow educators’ skills, knowledge and confidence – if it’s done right! Join this session to hear from the team at ISTE behind ISTE U, our hub of online courses on essential topics for educators. We’ll share our 5-step guide to designing and developing best-in-class online professional development experiences. Many of the same strategies will work for designing online learning experiences for students, too!
