This webinar will use Zoom.
Educators know that emotional engagement is critical in their classrooms - and for remote learning, but how can we intentionally design instruction for emotions and get to rigorous learning? In this online seminar, you will explore how the brain's emotion networks are critical to learning and cognition. You will learn practical strategies, including Universal Design for Learning (UDL), that can make a real difference for student learning. In addition, you will brainstorm how these strategies can be integrated into daily routines and practices to support rigorous, meaningful learning opportunities for all students. Through interactive discussions, you will gain strategies to design learning environments that support and value the full range of emotions in our classrooms and deepen the learning opportunities for every student.
