MET Community EdTech Talk Series
Special Guest: Dr.Jillianne Code
Topic: Pandemic Transformed Pedagogy
In this session, Dr.Jillianne Code will be discussing The Pandemic Transformed Pedagogy Project (PTP) which began by capturing the needs of technology education teachers in British Columbia during the pandemic. The project aims at finding ways to empower technology educators with evidence-based learning designs that are both flexible in their delivery of modality yet meet prescribed learning outcomes. The PTP project has evolved into a study to understand why the pandemic declaration and the switch to emergency remote teaching was a particularly ‘disorienting dilemma’ for technology educators.
