SCRIPT-NC Webinar: Shifting Blackboards: Supports for Emergency Online Teaching, Adjusting Assignments, and Rethinking Field Experiences

About
Recent emergency measures have forced many early childhood instructors to shift to online instruction. The purpose of this webinar is to provide ideas and supports to help in making those shifts. We’ll offer ideas for content resources, share options for ways to use technology (e.g., to hold large and small group discussions), and suggest possibilities for alternatives to assignments (e.g., observation using videos instead of classrooms).
