Teachers, tutors and volunteers throughout North Texas are always seeking out new and innovative ways to instruct the learners they work with every week. The shift from in-person classrooms to virtual ones has added new challenges from engaging learners and presenting content to navigating technology glitches and bridging the digital divide. We’ve heard the calls for help and will be bringing solutions to an online format of the DFW Literacy Symposium. And because we know that one day of training is not enough, we have partnered with Literacy ConneXus to provide back to back days of the most impactful and relevant professional development and training for adult education and literacy available! This virtual event will be on Friday, October 23rd and Saturday October 24th (8:45 AM -3:15 PM), and, as always, is free to everyone. This Collaboration of Symposiums will kick off with a general session on Identity, Respect, and Justice in the Time of COVID and will continue with topics on basic literacy, English language acquisition, digital literacy and resources, high school equivalency, social media and navigating the world of adult education during COVID-19. Whether you are a seasoned teaching veteran, a passionate new volunteer or just someone curious to learn more about ways to improve our community through education, this is THE must-attend conference of the year.
