About this Series
What does it mean to learn and lead in open and connected ways in a diverse and complex world? This month, in partnership with CLTV, we are simulcasting a series of webinars co-curated with colleagues from EdConteXts that will run concurrently with Educator Innovator’s CLMOOC. CLMOOC, a Connected Learning massively open online collaboration, is designed by National Writing Project educators and Educator Innovator partners as a collaborative, knowledge-building and sharing experience open to anyone interested in making, playing, and learning together about Connected Learning. In this webinar series, participants will explore themes and questions related to CLMOOC but will also think about how they relate to broader discourses around education and learning, with particular emphases on equity and contextual considerations. To learn more about CLMOOC, visit the FAQ page, and sign up for one of CLMOOC’s iterative Make Cycles taking place between now and August 2nd.
