Foundations of Family Engagement is a free course for early career teachers, counselors, and other school-based staff to build their knowledge and skills for effective family engagement. The course will be delivered in 3 learning blocks through a flipped instructional model. For each block, participants will first individually complete an online module to build their background knowledge related to family engagement. Then, we will meet together in a synchronous online workshop session to apply our knowledge to our work in our own school communities. The process will repeat for the next two learning blocks.
