Ep in collaboration with Pivot Professional Learning are proud to present a series of webinars as part of an effort to help guide our educators through the coming transition back to the classroom.

These interactive sessions will feature discussions about strategies for school leaders and teachers to take back to their classrooms. Each session will include useful tips from leading experts in engagement through content, supporting wellbeing, collecting feedback, and peer collaboration.

Educators who attend these sessions will take with them practical measures to bring into the classroom environment to help students flourish.

Amanda Bickerstaff, Pivot PL CEO highlights the urgency of the Education Redefined webinar series, “it is more important now than ever that we provide our educators with strategies that matter to ease their transition back into the classroom.”

“Based on the results of our State of Education research, wellbeing, and meeting student instructional needs should be at the forefront of the conversation.  So in this series, we are bringing together experts across the region to provide real guidance for school leaders and teachers in this time of transition.

CEO of EP, Alex Burke said that it was important the nation’s teachers were as well equipped as possible after such an unprecedented and sudden interruption to their classroom schedules.

“We all value teachers and the vitally important work they do,” he said.

“Education is one of the pillars of our community, and we know that the webinars will provide teachers with assistance and guidance when heading back into the classroom, or as they continue their vital work with students through online learning.”
