The National Board for Professional Teacher Standards is offering a webinar series designed for all educators, regardless of whether they have or are pursuing National Board certification.

The sessions being offered include:

  • April 29, 8 p.m. ET, “A Year Like No Other: How can we archive this experience?” – When you are sharing the pandemic experience with others in 15-20 years, what stories will you tell? What artifacts will you show? How will you and your students save this time in history?
  • May 6, 8 p.m. ET, “Facilitating Collaborative Teacher Learning” – In partnership with the National Board Resource Center at Stanford University, this session will focus on how to use artifacts of teaching practice to facilitate collaborative teacher learning. Using principles of adult learning theory and practice-based teacher education, you will explore tools, structures, and facilitation moves for leading meaningful professional learning in your school or district community, including adaptations for in-person and online sessions.
  • May 13, 7:30 p.m. ET, “Building a Community of Learners through Culturally Responsive Teaching” – In partnership with Student Achievement Partners, this session will focus on how to integrate culturally responsive teaching practices through building intellectual capacity in teachers and students. Using Zaretta Hammond’s framework, participants will understand how culture impacts the brain’s ability to process information. Participants will leave with an understanding of how to set up rituals and routines that reinforce self-directed learning and identity within virtual and in-person instruction.
