How much do your students learn while they are away from the classroom? As a veteran virtual teacher, I have learned to redesign the way I teach so that absent learners can check off their can-do statements while learning asynchronously from home. In this session, we will explore a variety of strategies to adapt your existing lessons so that absent students can return ready to progress with the rest of the class.
