TLC / Tech Department

Lunch & Learn Sessions and Workshops

The TLC is here to support you during this new virtual instructional time in education with everything from tech tools/frameworks for teaching online to ideas for building community, supporting wellness, and bringing joy to our teaching and learning. Please be in touch to let me know the sessions you'd like offered and like to lead. Also, let me know the time of day that works best in your schedule to attend sessions. Just as we first created our Teaching & Learning Center together, this new virtual community is ours to grow together. I'm eager to collaborate with you.

Now that we're all working from our homes, we can't as easily get the type of "Just in Time" tech/teaching help that we used to get from our colleagues. We've created this Just in Time Tech and Teaching Help Google Doc to help you easily arrange a TLC One-to-One session to get the help that you need. I invite you to add your name/info to this doc if there are types of teaching/tech help you're willing to provide for colleagues. 

Finally, here are the links to the Online Learning Tools for Lower School that Dan Stahl put together and the Distance Learning Tool & Lesson Idea Guide for 6-12 Faculty that Michael Moulton compiled. Also, Lisa Reedich, Katie Martin, and Elizabeth Hitschler put together these wellness resources for you.
