Upcoming OTAN Activities to Support Adult Educators – Week of 6/1

Posted on 5/31/2020

OTAN has scheduled a number of online webinars and Office Hours for our adult education colleagues who are continuing to teach and support their learners. (All times below are PDT.)

  • Visit OTAN’s COVID-19 Field Support webpage that we are continually updating with relevant information for teachers, students, and administrators: COVID-19 Field Support

  • OTAN Office Hours provide an opportunity to ask more detailed questions and get support on specific tools to use with students. You can sign up for these OTAN Office Hours at the California Adult Education Training Calendar (and please note our revised schedule):

    • Tuesday, June 2 from 4:00 to 5:00pm

    • Thursday, June 4 from 10:00 to 11:00am

  • On Tuesday at 2:00pm, Penny Pearson will present OER to Enhance Adult Learning. By using Open Educational Resources (OER) in the classroom and online, teachers and agencies can save money, revise and refresh curriculum, and give learners an opportunity to customize their learning. This session will introduce participants to the basics of OER: what they are, how can you find them, and considerations for determining their quality for use in your classroom. You can sign up for this webinar at the California Adult Education Training Calendar.

  • On Wednesday at 10:00am, Blair Roy and Susan Coulter will host Office Hours for Maximizing Moodle. The many features and resources available in Moodle can be daunting to new users. Join us to get one-on-one support, help, suggestions and just plain old encouragement in using Moodle with learners. Attending teachers will drive the session with their questions and needs. You can sign up for these Office Hours at the California Adult Education Training Calendar.

  • On Thursday at 10:00am, Anthony Burik will present Understanding Digital Equity, Inclusion, and Literacy. COVID-19 has shone a white-hot spotlight on a host of digital divide issues. This webinar is an introduction to digital equity, digital inclusion, and digital literacy to better understand what these terms encompass and resources to be aware of in each of these areas, with the goal of understanding how we can begin addressing digital divide issues for the benefit of students, staff, and communities. You can sign up for this webinar at the California Adult Education Training Calendar.
