Remote Learning 101 with Brandy Hempen


Uncertainties in education due to the COVID-19 Pandemic have been uneasy and downright frightening at times. Join real classroom teacher, Dr. Brandy Hempen, in addressing these uncertainties.


How much should I plan?

What expectations should I have for my students and their families?

What types of activities should I plan?

What resources are available for me to use?

How do I hold my students accountable?

How can I ease their minds as well as my own during these trying times?

What if we don't start the school year on time?

What if we must start the school year using E-learning?


This workshop will provide numerous FREE resources and address many of the questions that have arose during this time of uncertainty helping you feel more in control and more at ease for what may come in the fall. This virtual workshop is a great start in managing remote learning. It provides the basics and will lead into a more in-depth Remote Learning 102 workshop where assessments, activities, and tasks will be discussed. BONUS: If all goes well and school returns to normal you now have an abundance of resources to use in the virtual world of education!
