Statewide Disability Workshop-Maintaining Boundaries in the Virtual World

Free

with Laura DiGalbo

Calendar Feb 24, 2021 at 9 am

Maintaining boundaries in the classroom can be tough. It is much tougher in a setting where we are looking a people through screens, trying to read cues that are not evident and feeling isolated with our concerns. We feel unsettled by this truth because we as we think in the virtual world it should be reversed.

This workshop will examine our heightened feeling of responsibility for our students in the virtual environment, the dichotomy of disconnection and simultaneous over responsibility that we face when we not sharing the environment with those we teach; and the importance of knowing resources, using them…and getting out of the way!
