We are over 18 months into a pandemic. And the cognitive overload we face only continues to expand, for both educators and students. There are no “best practices” for where we are today.
In this webinar, Harvard Business Review Editor Amy Bernstein will lead a conversation with Michellana Jester, an expert in Global Economics and Management at MIT Sloan School of Management, about strategies educators and students can use to adapt and move forward in this ambiguous learning environment.
- The state of the current learning environment
- What we’ve lost and what we’ve gained
- Strategies to understand and assess students’ emotional capacities
- Inclusion, engagement, and awareness in the classroom
- Adapting for the long term
