Supporting Learners Through Understanding in a Post-Pandemic World


Supporting Learners Through Understanding in a Post-Pandemic World

Wednesday, November 8, 2023 
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted learning of all kinds with our youngest students being affected greatly from the shift to remote learning. In this webinar we will explore how to incorporate social–emotional learning and culturally responsive attributes in your teaching practices to develop more inclusive and collaborative learning experiences that promote creativity and self-expression in a post-pandemic world. We will also examine the continuum of choice in the art room as a way to increase student agency, voice, and skill development, as well as how to address student needs and reinstill a love of learning within a positive, engaging, and supportive learning environment.
