Distance Learning Coaching

Are you Surviving or Thriving?

Your technology staff is stretched to the limit right now. The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning can be their back up! Let us assist your teachers in this time of stress and uncertainty.

We will assess your faculty’s most pressing needs for professional development in the area of distance learning.

Some topics we've helped with:
  • Google Drive training
  • Zoom settings and training
  • Connecting curriculum to LMS
  • Selecting the right digital tool to deliver your instruction
  • Designing assessments
  • Advanced coaching in distance learning techniques
There are so many teaching tools available. Let Chris Powers, Shorecrest’s Director of Online Learning, help your teachers navigate options and find the same success in distance learning that they found in their physical classrooms. 

Chris can develop (or help you develop) a personalized plan for delivering distance learning - coaching to the people who need it, when they need it - with on-demand virtual teacher support.
We are teachers helping teachers. Our initial consultation and first, online, one-hour training session are free.

Chris also supports and advises any Shorecrest student in an online class from providers around the world.

There are so many teaching tools available, let Chris help you navigate the options and help your teachers find the same success in distance learning that they found in their physical classrooms.
