Preparing Teacher Candidates for Online and Hybrid Instruction Affinity Group


This Affinity Group, hosted in collaboration with CEEDAR and CIDDL, will build the capacity of higher education faculty to support the critical development of K-12 educators to plan, design, and deliver effective instruction within the range of online and hybrid learning environments. The demand to teach students in the pandemic has forced K-12 educators to develop an additional set of skills. Interactive meetings will support faculty and stakeholders who are engaged in preparing candidates to plan and implement effective instructional practices for the online and hybrid learning environment. Participants will hear and learn from experts who have succeeded in the development and implementation of innovative teacher preparation experiences to foster online and hybrid K-12 classroom instruction.



This session gives an introduction to the CIDDL center and defines “hybrid” and “virtual” teaching and learning. Teachers from Lawrence Virtual School share their experiences of teaching virtually and how it differs from a traditional face to face experience.

Next Meeting: 12.08.21
