The COVID Crisis has disrupted school in so many ways, but professional development does not have to be one of them. We can still ensure educators can learn and grow this year, even if it is from a virtual space instead of a physical one.
Trevor has converted all of his workshops and keynotes to fit a virtual format. Click the link below to view descriptions of his workshops and keynotes.
Always practical. Always inspirational.
Like his in-person presentations and workshops, Trevor's virtual offerings are still full of inspiring storytelling and practical ideas to enhance learning. A successful workshop or keynote is largely dependent on energy, and so Trevor's virtual presentations are about connecting with participants, allowing them to participate as well. This leaves everyone feeling more equipped to thrive in their classrooms.
Professional development may not be in a physical building for awhile, but it can still look, sound, and feel like it.
All of Trevor's talks are live streamed with a 4K camera and high definition audio (At no extra expense).
How to Thrive as a Virtual Teacher
Most teachers didn't train to be virtual teachers. But most teachers also didn't ask for a global pandemic to happen. However, just because virtual teaching may be different, doesn't mean every teacher can't be successful at it.
Trevor shares tested ideas, tools, and processes to thrive while leading a virtual classroom. From how to set up dynamic virtual meetings to how to create engaging virtual curriculums, every teacher can find new ways to thrive in the virtual classroom.
