Building Educator Supports for post-2020 Teaching: More than a webpage
This presentation will focus on opening up the topic of teacher and admin needs for various new supports in post-2020 educational settings. The world has changed and new needs have emerged as we stretch and grow to meet the new challenges we face as educators. In order to address this, we will talk about our newly launched website, www.bricolageteacher.com and how we are striving to build a place of resources that not only supports teachers with materials and information, but facilitates interaction with experts, peer-peer learning and the promotion of group research. In order to promote inclusivity, we will talk about the need to reach out to various groups of educators in order to give a strong and more unified voice to the needs. We will also address the issues of supporting educators who wish to become published or make academic presentations, to meet their goals in these areas by assisting and encouraging them actively. Finally, we would like to open up the floor to discussion about teacher needs and other areas of professional development in a brainstorming/collaborative learning session.
