Putting PD into Practice through Virtual Learning

On the show today, we have the pleasure of speaking with Stepan Mekhitarian, the Interim Director for Innovation, Instruction, Assessment & Accountability at Glendale Unified School District in Glendale, California.

Stepan is passionate about supporting teachers in the blended and virtual learning environments. In fact, he’s so passionate about this topic, that he wrote a book about it: The Essential Blended Learning PD Planner: Where Classroom Practice Meets Distance Learning.¬†

In this episode, he shares how his district is guiding teachers and leaders on how to effectively use instructional technology to benefit students and educators. Stepan shares more about how his district is applying these practices to support teaching and learning within his district and how they have been able to navigate the transition to virtual learning.
