Online Workshop for K-12 Educators Transitioning to E-Learning Offered by University

August 27, 2020 — Park University’s Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Development will again offer a four-week online workshop geared for K-12 teachers to help in the transition to e-learning. The workshop, “From the Schoolhouse to Their House: A New Playbook for Teaching and Learning,” will kick off on Monday, Jan. 25, 2021.

The workshop was designed by educators in K-12 and higher education settings, as well as instructional designers. Two nights a week (Mondays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. [Central time]) during the four weeks, expert panels will present a variety of session topics, including: Tools for Transition, Bringing Balance: In-Person and Online Learning, Social Emotional Learning, and Deep Dive – Planning Forward. In addition, breakout conversations will be provided during the discussions and each weekly session will be different, providing resources and tools to immediately use in the online classroom.

Park University has a long and rich history in designing and delivering online learning courses around the world, having been one of the early adapters to online education in 1996. This experience, coupled with the expertise of K-12 educators who are on the frontlines of e-learning, will assist participants in navigating the various bits of information and best practices to ensure effective teaching for today and the future.

Registration cost is $50 for individuals not wishing to earn credit or $250 for those who want to receive three credit hours toward a Master of Education degree in Park’s Educational Leadership or Educational Technology programs.
