Open Classroom Week – five days of online class visit opportunities

November 2 – November 6, 2020
Kick-off Monday November 2nd – 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Wrap-Up Friday November 6th – 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Feeling isolated in your remote teaching space this fall?
Looking for inspiration, reflection and dialogue on your remote adapted teaching this fall? 

Join us for Open Classroom Week!

The week will start with a live kick-off Zoom session, then during Open Classroom Week a set of classes will be ‘opened’ for you to visit. Visit one or all, and in the process reflect on what can be learned about your own teaching. You can choose to open your own classroom (synchronous or asynchronous). The week will close with a Zoom session on Friday as we reflect on what we’ve learned.

A schedule of specific open classrooms and times will be made available to everyone who signs up.

Expect appreciative dialogue with colleagues and new insights and ideas into teaching and learning to add to your (remote adapted) teaching repertoire.

Time commitment: Time required is up to you, depending on how many classes you decide to join. Participation in the pre-meeting and the wrap-up is recommended but not required.


Sign up for the week here==============================>>>>>

Sign up to open up your synchronous and/or asynchronous classroom (You decide on max number of visitors and CTE will help you coordinate visits)
