What Now and What Next?
April 3rd, 1:00 PM EST
Dr. Fernando Reimers, Ford Foundation Professor of Practice in International Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, joins us to explore the future of global education amidst and after COVID-19.
Dr. Reimers will speak to the rapid transition to distance-learning within universities and schools as well as key focal points for school administrators, and the implications for global education curriculum. Participants will also discuss this unique moment in modern history, considering the notion of a new ‘shared experience’ (with marked differences between countries) for every person in the world. This conversation with Dr. Reimers will be facilitated by Envoys co-founder and SVP of Education Seth Leighton, with opportunities for participant questions via Zoom’s chat feature.
Remote Work in Organizations: Systems Approaches
April 10th, 1:00 PM EST
This session will be lead by Seth Leighton, Envoys Founder and SVP of Education.
With offices, colleagues, and partners around the world, Envoys has always been a company that operates remotely. Our geographically-distributed teams and individuals use technology to collaborate on a daily basis, performing work that matters. Over the past decade, we’ve learned many lessons in organizing remote work, including building channels of work communication, maintaining group norms, ensuring a culture of productivity, and enabling creativity and innovation. This session puts forth those lessons for the current challenges facing our fellow educators.
