Online learning presents many challenges for learners. The challenges for English learners (ELs) and other student populations are also significant. Extenuating circumstances like the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated these challenges for learners and reduced or eliminated peer-to-peer interaction in remote environments. Culturally and linguistically diverse students need opportunities to collaborate with peers, to draw on funds of knowledge and contribute to the learning of the class.
TransACT is proud to welcome Carol Salva as she presents “Peer-to-Peer Interaction in Remote Environments; Success for Diverse Populations” on January 26, 2021 at 11:30 am PT / 12:30 pm MT / 1:30 pm CT / 2:30 pm ET. This webinar focuses on strategies and techniques for facilitating peer-to-peer interaction during online learning and shares examples of how educators are finding ways to facilitate peer-to-peer interaction in remote environments despite common challenges.
