The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) just released a pre-recorded webinar on how the WWC practice guides and other resources can support educators in using evidence-based instructional practices for instruction in any setting, including remote learning. During the COVID-19 pandemic, educators are facing an unprecedented situation with many schools delivering some or all instruction remotely. WWC resources like practice guides remain relevant to educators even as the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way instruction is delivered.
This webinar includes the following:
- An overview of WWC practice guides, including their structure and content, and supplemental resources drawn from practice guides, such as instructional tips for educators, tips for parents and caregivers, practice guide summaries, and infographics
- A discussion of evidence-based practices in the practice guides that can be adapted for a remote learning setting, drawing on examples from five new WWC infographics on remote instruction in math, reading, and writing in elementary and secondary classrooms
Given the heightened demands on educators’ time this school year, the webinar has been prerecorded so it is available to listen to when convenient. The webinar is available on the WWC website: https://ies.ed.gov/ncee/wwc/Resources/ResourcesForEducators
Additional resources (such as the full library of practice guides and five recent infographics on using evidence-based practices in remote learning settings) are also available for free on the WWC website.
