New Republic Offers Free Webinars For Educators

New Republic will host two webinars, one April 15 and one April 16, for educators and administrators.

The topic for the webinar April 15 is Making Advising and Student Supports Accessible for Students in the COVID-19 Crisis.

At the height of the last recession, the federal government invested $2 billion in community colleges to create innovative workforce programs with the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program for community colleges in the U.S. A team researchers at New America spent the last two years researching the impact of the TAACCCT program and have identified lessons that can inform community colleges’ response to the current crisis.

Join in on April 15 from 2-3:30 pm ET to hear from community college leaders, student advisors, and grant evaluators about how lessons from TAACCCT are making a difference in our nation in the time of COVID-19 and informing the transition to fully online student support services.

The webinar will feature leaders from several TAACCCT grants with strong online advising and support presence who will share guiding principles for community colleges to adapt to a fully virtual environment. These grantees are using programs and practices developed through TAACCCT to offer students the guidance and support they need to persist, complete their programs, and prepare for employment at this crucial moment in our nation’s history. At a time when students are being forced to transition to online learning, supporting and guiding them while maintaining social distancing will make their continued success possible.

The webinar April 16 is centered around the topic Making Healthcare Education Responsive to Student Needs in the COVID19 Crisis, and will also cover aspects of TAACCCT. Join in on April 16 from 2-3:30 pm ET to hear from community college leaders, healthcare education experts, and grant evaluators on how the lessons from TAACCCT grants focused on healthcare can inform community colleges’ response to the coronavirus pandemic.
