When it comes to remote learning, many parents and caregivers across Illinois have quickly learned that supporting their child’s education means more than just computer troubleshooting. In particular, parents and caregivers alike have faced challenges when it comes to fostering social emotional learning while still supporting traditional academic learning.
The LTC SPARK program has recognized this need and responded by creating a new, self-guided course titled “Parenting in a Pandemic” that centers SEL skills in an at-home learning environment.
In this course, written by SEL educator and coach Abby Lyons, participants will learn how to develop learning spaces at home, support student engagement, and encourage self-regulation. Parents and caregivers will also walk away from this course with the skills needed to manage their own social emotional well-being – no matter what challenges remote learning throws at them.
Sign up for “Parenting in a Pandemic” today and begin working toward completing this engaging new course at your own pace.
The LTC also offers a library of self-guided online courses on a variety of other topics, from Google Drive basics to integrated cybersecurity. You can sign up for these courses at any time, for free, on the LTC’s Online Courses page.
