The Louisiana Association of Educators will begin offering online courses to help educators with remote learning for their students out of school during the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

According to a release, the program is made possible by LAE's professional development arm, The Teaching and Learning Center.

LAE trainers will host webinars for educators interested in gaining a better understanding of how to deliver virtual instruction to students of all grade levels.

Trainers will cover best practices on how to host students in virtual learning settings.

Key areas of focus include incorporating digital discussion boards, video, and online activities to maximize engagement for both students and parents. The course lasts about 90 minutes.
