Full course description

Description:

Participants in this PLC will engage with Boston College leadership faculty and guests to support one another navigating the current crisis, addressing key questions:

  • How must we rethink and adapt our educational vision and instructional approach given this situation?

  • How can we redesign support structures and roles to ensure different stakeholders, including students, families and teachers have what they need?

  • How do we develop strategic communication channels to foster community amidst remote learning?

  • How do we adapt school and district policies to meet new, unanticipated demands?

  • What kinds of equity issues have emerged or been made visible through this crisis?

 

We will focus on proactive planning for reopening in the Fall by:

  • Discussing ongoing dilemmas raised by the crisis

  • Identifying key action steps prior to opening
  • Collaborating with peers on ‘reopening action plans’ for one another’s contexts
