Session 4: 4:00pm-5:00pm (Friday March 01, 2024)



This session will review teaching strategies from a variety of different instructional settings – distance learning, blended, hybrid, and in-person – and how the tools and features from both digital and print curricula can enhance learning experiences and accelerate students’ paths towards their academic and career goals. Ms. Ruiz will present instructional methods she and other instructors currently employ to best assess, instruct, and track their students’ learning and provide them with academic and contextualized learning experiences in ways that are more accessible, thereby increasing student persistence and their earning of measurable skills gains.
