Super Charge Your On-Site & Remote Teaching with collaboration, engagement, and expert facilitation tips using Microsoft Teams with this Six week course!

Microsoft Teams Spectacular

Many educators are rethinking what teaching and learning look like. Come explore many digital tools that can help teachers differentiate instructions to reach every student on-site or remotely. Participants will learn how to effectively and efficiently set up a virtual learning space to (or "where they can"?) facilitate interactive lessons and personal experiences for their students, parents/guardians, and colleagues. This course leads teachers through best practices of online management and organization of a virtual classroom while creating interactive lessons, activities, and assessments using Microsoft Teams. The course can take from 2-4 hours per week, but depends largely on how much time you want to spend playing in the TEAMS environment and collaborating with fellow educators.


This course runs for six weeks. New assignments will be posted each Monday and due the following, however, due dates are flexible. We realize that life happens and sometimes you need a few extra days to complete your work. Sticking to the due dates is highly recommended so you don't fall behind and because your classmates will be looking forward to collaborating with you. The instructor will be online daily to answer questions and offer feedback. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
