Deeper Learning in a Distance Learning World: Winter 2021 Workshop Series
The Professional Development Collaborative at Washington International School is pleased to announce the continuation of our online workshop series that will take place every other Thursday this winter, from January-March.
Titled “Deeper Learning in a Distance Learning World,” the series will commence on Thursday, January 21, 2021. Each workshop will focus on a pedagogical tool or strategy developed at or inspired by Project Zero, a research group located in the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University, and will feature a master educator from the DC-Project Zero network located in the Washington, DC, region.
All workshops will take place from 4:00-5:15 PM (US EST).
On January 21, the series will launch with “Mindfulness Meditation for Building Stress Resilience and Social-Emotional Awareness,” a workshop led by Nathalie Ryan, an educator at the National Gallery of Art and a long-time faculty member at WISSIT, our annual summer institute.
The cost for each workshop is $40.00. Payment must be made by credit card at the time of registration.
Each workshop will be capped at 22 participants, who will receive by email the link to the workshop session two days in advance. We recommend registering as early as possible, as we expect each workshop to fill quickly. Registration will close at 5:00 PM on the Monday before each workshop.
The series will run through Thursday, March 18. The dates, topics, and leaders for the five workshops are listed below.
