On Wednesday October 14, Assistant Professor in the Department of Education Dr. Caitlin Riegel presented at the International Society for Educational Planning (ISEP) Conference. She presented independently on “Preparing for Distance Learning: Elements of Effective Professional Development” as well as co-presented with Dr. Rosina Mete, a registered psychotherapist located in Canada, on “Mental Health in the 21st Century Classroom: Technology Strategies for Pre-Service Teachers.”

Dr. Riegel’s independent presentation focused on the elements of effective professional development that is currently needed for those working in education who were not previously prepared to teach K-12 in the virtual realm. Dr. Riegel and Dr. Mete’s co-presentation focused on using a combination of traditional and modern networking approaches to aid individuals working in governmental agencies, schools and higher education in building a network of educational planners not constricted by geographic bounds, so that they can help solve education-related problems, offer experiential advice, and/or provide avenues for career advancement during times of pandemic. These presentations contributed to the overall body of knowledge shared by international higher education faculty & administrators, leaders involved in educational planning, and K-12 teachers & administrators.
