We know teachers around the world are facing new professional challenges, including teaching virtually for the first time. At National Geographic Learning we want to help them continue to bring the world to their learners, no matter where they are. We’ve developed a web page which will be a hub for our partners to find support on professional development – via webinars, blogs and additional resources. Online Professional Development Resources
One of these initiatives is a special three-part webinar series hosted National Geographic Learning in collaboration with The College of Education and Human Development at George Mason University called Online Teaching for English Teachers. Drawing on their research and teaching experience, Drs. Joan Kang Shin and Jered Borup from George Mason University share practical tips for breaking through your screen and engaging your English language students in ways that improve their learning community, even when attending classes online. We encourage you and your teams to make the most of these free resources and sign up for the next webinar in the series – Making your Screen Come AliveWe shall make it our priority to ensure that teaching and learning in schools using NGL materials continues, by helping you to deliver quality distance learning content until such time as the academic calendar returns to normal in the schools in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
