Three online learning specialists (Bonnie Stewart, Nick Baker, Dave Cormier) from the University of Windsor are offering a series of free webinars to help Ontario elementary and high school teachers lead lessons from home. Recordings from the completed webinars are now provided below.
The series of three open webinars starts this Thursday. The second and third webinars will feature panelists from across the province, including members of the local teaching community.
Session #1: Simple, Equitable, Engaging – Thursday, April 16, 2pm EDT
With: Bonnie Stewart, Nick Baker, Dave Cormier
Session #2: Elementary Educators – Monday, April 20, 2pm EDT
With: panelists Fouada Hamzeh, Zoe Branigan-Pipe, Peter Cameron, Bonnie Stewart, Nick Baker, Dave Cormier
Session #3: High School Educators – Wednesday, April 22, 2pm EDT

Teachers who tune in live to the Zoom webinars will be able use the platform’s chat function to ask questions. The sessions will also be recorded and shared openly across Ontario.
Each session is limited to 500 teachers.
The webinars are the latest UWindsor resource for teaching children learning from home. Through the Faculty of Education’s Open Page, Bonnie Stewart has also developed the #UWinToolParade, a series of videos and podcasts reviewing a variety of platforms for online learning. Originally intended for educators, the videos appeal to parents, too, as families are staying home to combat the spread of COVID-19.
