Webinar: Going Deeper with Distance Learning

Free webinar hosted by Corwin and presented by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Hattie.

The return to schooling for the 2020-21 school year is proving to be unlike any other we have witnessed. The field is learning about what works and what doesn’t in distance learning at breakneck speed. School leaders are looking for ways to lead, not just manage. Teachers need guidance about effective practices in virtual environments. Parents want to help, but don’t always know how and may not be well resourced. In this webinar, we discuss:
• Cohesive instructional design tools powered by formative evaluation.
• Tools for supporting school leaders working at a distance
• Ways to deepen partnerships between home and school

The Distance Learning Playbook Institute

Based on Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Hattie's new title, The Distance Learning Playbook, this post-conference workshop, led by Douglas Fisher, provides a clear plan for educators to be intentional and purposeful as we begin to re-open schools—whether that be physically or remotely. Building on key insights of the Visible Learning® research, attendees will explore the implementation of distance learning teaching practices that focus on credibility, creating learning experiences that are meaningful, and feedback that increases impact.

Book Club: Distance Learning Playbook for Parents

Free Book Club hosted by Corwin, Moderated by Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey.

October 6 & 8 at 3:00pm Pacific Time

Parents and caregivers are doing their absolute best to support their children from home during distance learning. But the demands seem overwhelming. A one-size-fits-all approach fails to take into account the unique assets and circumstances each family can offer. The Distance Learning Playbook for Parents outlines supportive strategies for navigating virtual environments to ensure effective and impactful learning that aligns the needs and expectations of teachers, parents, and students alike. Best of all, these are meant to be customized to meet the needs of families.

Going Deeper with Distance Learning Playbook Institute

The return to schooling for the 2020-21 school year is proving to be unlike any other we have witnessed. The crisis teaching of spring 2020 is behind us and now we are utilizing distance learning, whether fully or in hybrid models, to get on with schooling. The field is learning about what works and what doesn’t at breakneck speed. The purpose of this institute is to bring forward the latest in effective practice in virtual spaces by extending the foundational work established in the Distance Learning Playbook.

Book Club: comprehension

Free Book Club hosted by Corwin, Moderated by Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey.

October 13 & 15 at 3:00pm Pacific Time

Radically change the way students learn from texts, extending beyond comprehension to critical reasoning and problem solving. Is your reading comprehension instruction just a pile of strategies? There is no evidence that teaching one strategy at a time, especially with pieces of text that require that readers use a variety of strategies to successfully negotiate meaning, is effective. And how can we extend comprehension beyond simple meaning?  Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Nicole Law propose a new, comprehensive model of reading instruction that goes beyond teaching skills to fostering engagement and motivation. Using a structured, three-pronged approach—skill, will, and thrill—students learn to experience reading as a purposeful act and embrace struggle as a natural part of the reading process.
