TLN | Strategies for Distance Learning: Helping Students Find Meaning, Purpose, and Value in a Digital World with Dr. Bonnie Robb
From Amy Kwong-Kwapisz on February 9th, 2021
Join the Teacher Leadership Network, as we navigate 2021 with professional development inspired to help educators finish out the school year strong. This school year, educators are being asked to help students learn from a distance. While we cannot control all of the circumstances our learners face, we can focus on how they learn while developing experiences that maximize their learning potential. All learners, regardless of age or circumstances, need new information to be meaningful at a neurobiological level. They also crave a sense of purpose and value in the learning experiences they are provided. Can this be achieved during distance learning? To find out, we will discuss some theory and strategies that will help you provide meaning, purpose, and value to distance learning that can be applied to all ages of learners.
Our presenter for the evening is UP alumnae, Dr. Bonnie Robb ('95 BA, '01 MEd, and '16 EdD).
Dr. Robb is a 24-year veteran teacher with a focus on neuroeducation, has been recognized by the the Oregon Department of Education as the Oregon Teacher of the Year by the Milken Family Foundation, and is an adjuct instructor at UP.
