IDA Providing Free Webinar Series, Begins 4/13

IDA will be hosting free bi-weekly webinars through our Facebook and YouTube pages. Accompanying the webinars, IDA will also be offering free resources and giveaways. 

In our first webinar, “Innovative Ways to Teach Online,” Margie Gillis will share some ideas for supporting teachers virtually. While most of our coaching experiences have occurred face-to-face, we know from research that teachers can benefit from online learning as well. Participants will hear about some of the ways that we are currently supporting teachers so they can continue to build their knowledge and practice in order to teach their students how to read.

Margie B. Gillis, EdD, CALT, is a Certified Academic Language Therapist who became interested in reading while studying with Isabelle Liberman at the University of Connecticut. In 2009, Margie founded Literacy How to provide professional development on how best to implement research-based reading practices in the classroom. In 2010, Margie founded the Anne E. Fowler Foundation to continue the work of her mentor. Margie also is the co-founder and former president of Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities, the former president of the CT Branch of IDA, and a board member of the New Alliance Foundation. She is also a professional adviser for Read Works and Understood. The column Chronicles From the Classroom presents her experiences in the field of reading and offers concrete suggestions about what we can do to right the educational ship. Margie serves on the editorial board of the International Dyslexia Association’s Perspectives on Language and Literacy.

We’ll see you Monday, April 13, at 3 pm!
