Virtual Virginia hosting NSQ-aligned webinar series on online teaching

Virtual Virginia will host a series of free, 45-minute webinars aligned to the National Standards for Quality (NSQ) Online Teaching throughout Fall 2020.

The National Standards for Quality Online Teaching have been the benchmark for online programs, districts, and state agencies since their creation in 2007. In 2018, the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance (VLLA) and Quality Matters (QM) organized a committee of experts in the field of K–12 online teaching to revise the national standards that guide best practices in online instruction.

Details about the webinars are included below. Each webinar requires pre-registration.
