These courses – designed by educators for educators – provide educators and other education leaders with the resources, knowledge, mindsets, and skills necessary to cultivate academic achievement and ensure well-being for refugee, immigrant, multilingual learner/emergent bilingual, and newcomer students.
Course participants will move through the online course at their own pace and engage in online discussions with colleagues. Course modules focus on concrete, culturally responsive, and assets-driven strategies to support multicultural, multilingual learners, especially newcomers. Courses provide 30 clock hours/CEUs upon successful completion.
Four optional workshops (5 clock hours/CEUs each; dates TBD) will be held on Saturdays to deepen and extend course content, as well as to shine a spotlight on the unique status, strengths, and needs of newly arriving Ukrainian and Afghan students and families. The workshops are included in the course fee.
