Webinar Series: Online Teaching & Learning Through Disruption

We postponed the second annual ATD Teaching & Learning Summit (set for late April in St. Louis) and are transitioning our supports to a series of webinars. They are designed to give faculty a place to learn from one another about how to support student success in a fully remote teaching and learning environment during the unprecedented closure of community college campuses across the United States. During each of these weekly sessions, we hope to accomplish three goals:

  1. Provide you with the strategies, tools, and knowledge you need to adjust to the educational and social disruptions on your campus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic
  2. Help connect you with peers, communities of practice, and other valuable external resources
  3. Hear from you about your immediate needs so ATD’s Teaching and Learning team can develop just-in-time resources and services to help address these needs


Webinar 1: Strategies for Rapidly Moving Online

Wednesday, March 25 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT

When teaching during times of disruption, educators need to be creative and flexible in how they support students in achieving essential course learning objectives. During this free one-hour webinar, Achieving the Dream will share strategies to help you and your students rapidly move your teaching and learning online. We’ll address common challenges such as how to stay connected to your students, foster collaboration, find low tech solutions when online is not an option, and find digital activities and assignments on the fly. Online teaching experts and instructional designers from ATD network colleges will share their expertise and emerging ideas. There will be time reserved to connect with other colleges, share creative solutions, and hear what your greatest needs are and how ATD can help.

Shortly after Webinar 1, and as we understand more about your needs, we will announce the topics of the remaining three webinars. At any point over the next week or during next Wednesday’s webinar, we invite you to email the Teaching & Learning team (teachingandlearning@achievingthedream.org) with specific topics or supports that we might address through these sessions.

Webinar 3: April 8  1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT.
