Education Now: Teaching, Learning, and Growing Amid the Pandemic

As this unprecedented fall begins, against the backdrop of COVID-19, racial violence, and action for justice and healing, back-to-school is nothing like normal. But as schools reopen — online, in person, or all of the above — HGSE’s Education Now webinars will look at the challenges of the moment, offering actionable insights that you can use today. We aim to give our audience strategies and ideas that will prompt hope, add fuel to the push for equity, and create the circumstances for transformation across education.
