Students Speak | Listening In to Move Forward

How can we capture and elevate students’ experiences during remote learning to inform school practices and policies for next year? Join educators from around the country for a two-part professional development opportunity to reflect on collective learnings from the past few months of remote learning and reimagine how school might look in the Fall to best support student well-being and engagement with learning.


We will email the Zoom webinar links to all registrants on Friday, May 29, 2020, at 5pm CT. If you do not receive it or still want to register, please contact Margaret Dunlap. 

Program Details

Session 1: Monday, June 1st – 9-10:30 am PT / 12-1:30 pm ET 

Listening to and learning from students is a critical step as educators plan for next year. Through a virtual fishbowl protocol, you will hear directly from high school students about their experiences with remote learning. What worked? What didn’t? How does this current situation highlight what really matters for our students?

Session 2: Thursday, June 4th – 12-2 pm PT / 3-5 pm ET

Reflect with other educators from across the country on what you heard during the Session 1 Fishbowl, as well as what you may have heard from your own students. Small group discussions will be facilitated by Challenge Success staff and will include time to brainstorm and consider strategies to support your planning for the next school year.


Any middle or high school educator is welcome to attend. Note that the fishbowl will include only high school students, but the ideas shared will be relevant for middle and high schools.


$110 per educator. Space is limited. Register by May 29, 2020
