Nancy Sulla on Engaging Students in a Hybrid Learning Environment
Aug 04, 2020 Season 1 Episode 11
Christopher J. Leonard, MSW, LCSW, M.ED

We've all seen the national news reports declaring this spring's remote learning a disaster. Students and parents were worried about not feeling engaged, lacking socialization, and being just plain bored. Although schools are trying to create safe in-person learning, most will start the year in a hybrid mix of in-person and remote learning.

In this episode, Chris talks with Dr. Nancy Sulla, author of five books on creating student-driven, blended learning environments. Dr. Sulla’s instructional plan for transforming learning is giving teachers an entirely new way to build student engagement, empowerment, and efficacy. Highlights include:

  • How a hybrid learning environment can help students struggling with mental health issues.
  • The 5 components that students need to get the most benefit from education.
  • The “super skills” that teachers need to succeed with remote instruction.
  • Why live-streaming is NOT the answer, and the better solution that teachers can easily do on their own.
  • One simple thing teachers can do to prepare students to re-enter the classroom in the fall.
