D2L Rise Chicago – Round Table

An exclusive, collaborative discussion with thought leaders in K-20 learning.

Round Table Topics

Change is Essential: How Do We Change Right?

Change is inevitable, and many educators are resistant to change. However, it is important to shift the narrative from resistance to response. Change management in education can involve pedagogy, administrative process and technology, or a combination of one or more of these areas. Often, this requires being proactive through aligning technology and teaching goals to empower staff and students to embrace change in the classroom.  We will discuss how to shift the narrative from “resistance” to “response” as well as share best practices, processes and examples to help teachers and students embrace change, and share strategies that help educators change fatigue/burnout.

Success for All Students: Tackling Learning Loss Through Equity and Technology

As leaders, how do we lean into these challenges and help our staff and students find new ways forward to successful learning outcomes? We will discuss how to refocus on how we can collectively grow, innovate, support our learners and educators – no matter who, no matter their experiences, no matter their learning needs, and no matter what is going on in the world around us.
