The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, and Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center (MOESC) is adapting to make sure that students continue to be served. This month, MOESC’s press releases will be focusing on showing the public what steps are being taken by each department or team. This first release will focus on the Teaching and Learning Team. 

The Teaching and Learning Team provides job-embedded professional development and customized support services to MOESC’s member districts. The team has moved all work to online services, providing the ability to work virtually with teachers and administrators individually or in groups.

  • The Teaching and Learning Team has created district-specific sites and personalized Google classrooms filled with professional development materials designed to prepare teachers to provide evidence-based planning, instruction, and assessment while schools are closed.

  • The online content for each district is customized to meet individual teachers’ needs, based on the work previously done in the district from September 2019 to the present. This seamless transition ensures that there is no lag in the professional development designed and implemented at the district, building, and classroom levels.  

  • As part of this process, the Teaching and Learning Team is providing individualized feedback and support for each teacher who accesses the sites.

  • As has been the case all year, the team members continue to provide individual, personalized assistance on a variety of topics to administrators at all levels.

  • The team will also make available virtual group sessions across districts for teacher networking, sharing of resources, and planning for the 2020-2021 school year.

  • As needs change, the Teaching and Learning department is poised to implement services to support educators in the coming months.       

Lynn Meister, Director of the Teaching and Learning team, explained, “I am so proud of the Teaching and Learning Team’s ability to immediately adapt all our work to meet the needs of districts, buildings, and individual teachers.  The online sites, with new learning and resource materials, also include a personal component so teachers and administrators will remain in contact with the team members through Zoom, phone calls, emails, and FaceTime. The team worked tirelessly to ‘flip’ all our in-district professional development to an online format with district-specific sessions and personal contacts to make it as seamless as possible.
