Beyond Teaching to the Test

First things first…

This is a virtual experience. You will need to use the Zoom platform on your computer, coupled with a working webcam and microphone, to fully engage with this experience. If you have any technical difficulties you should reach out to your facilitator ASAP. Please plan to arrive at least 5 minutes before the session begins to account for any technical difficulty.

Session-Specific Information: For relevant assignments, links, and resources, please see the appropriate headings under each session. These will be updated prior to each session.
