Distance Teaching and Learning Syllabus
The Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP) of the Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE) seeks to prepare and support teacher leaders in creating equitable and successful schools and classrooms. This document is the syllabus for their course entitled EDUC261B: Distance Learning. The course is designed to begin the conversation around what synchronous and asynchronous remote teaching and learning can look like, and how considerations of equity and access are central to the realization of successful remote learning experiences. A primary goal of the course is to equip secondary teachers with the tools and information to make informed, pedagogically-grounded decisions while working within highly dynamic learning environments. The syllabus includes a robust list of reading and online resources. Course topics covered include access, equity, socio-emotional skills, formative assessments, learning management systems, and more.
