Scheduling in a Pandemic: How to Create Your School’s Fall 2020 Schedule

Date(s): 6/1/2020 — 6/2/2020 Status: Wait-listed

Virtual Workshop: Monday, June 1–Tuesday, June 2, 2020 ● Synchronous Times: 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m.; 3:30-5:00 p.m ET each day

The simple truth? Your “regular” school schedule won’t work for fall 2020. If your community returns to your physical campus, you’ll need to account for social distancing—leading to time, people, space, and programming issues.

Learn how your private-independent day school can build a modified schedule for fall 2020, accounting for your school’s chosen path—on-campus learning while remaining socially distant, blended instruction (on campus and distance learning), or 100% distance learning.

The Art and Science of Blended Learning: Preparing for the 2020–21 School Year

Date(s): 7/13/2020 — 7/26/2020 Status: Open

An interactive course for private school teachers

Virtual Course Dates: Monday, July 13–Sunday, July 26

This virtual course will also take place July 27–August 9 and August 10–23.

Private-independent school teachers worked hard to pivot to distance learning this spring. Now we must consider the 2020-2021 school year.

Teachers must prepare to teach some of their classes at a distance, while also having a plan for teaching in their physical classrooms. This course will prepare teachers to redesign their classes with evidence-based practices that build student engagement and support in-depth learning—by experiencing such a class themselves. 

How This Course Works

This course consists of interactive modules (videos, slideshows, and other types of presentations) and online video and text discussions and forums. Mike Gwaltney, ISM Director of Online Learning and Consultant, and Barbara Beachley, ISM Director of Organizational Learning and Development will act as tutors, coaches, and mentors along the way, checking in with each learner as they progress through the course.

The course will be paced so all participants will be given the same tasks at the same time. Participants have the freedom to complete their individual work when their schedule allows, while having access to a cohort of fellow learners to ask questions and discuss the tasks at hand.
