Exploring Post-COVID Learning Strategies

Reading Time: 2 minutes

NWEA, a not-for-profit research and assessment provider, recently announced the launch of its new professional learning podcast, The Continuing Educator. The podcast series, geared toward educational leaders and teachers, will discuss current challenges impacting classrooms, schools, and systems, and explore strategies to help educators leverage this unique time of transition to revisit, reform, and design a new future for American education.

The podcast is hosted by Jacob Bruno, head of the Professional Learning team at NWEA. The first season, moderated by NWEA’s Lindsay Prendergast, Professional Learning Consultant, and Erin Beard, D.Ed., Content Designer, will focus on grading and feature thought-provoking interviews with key voices on topics such as grading for learning, grading policies, and formative assessment.

“The current atmosphere in classrooms today is like nothing we have seen before. There is a real need to relook at how we are teaching and evaluating students,” said Prendergast. “This podcast series creates an opportunity to learn from visionaries who have real classroom experience as well as top thought leaders and researchers in professional learning to tackle the classroom challenges in the post-COVID era, starting with an in-depth look at grading practices.”
