The Student Support Spectrum

27 April 2023
ONLINE via Zoom Webinar


This session will focus on engaging different learner types with a specific focus on international (ESL) students, students with language literacy and numeracy (LLN) needs, and students with additional learning or behavioral needs.

We will explore how classroom interactions and planning can stimulate students to increase participation, output, how resource selection (and use) and technology can impact a learner's ability to engage meaningfully with the class content.
