Educators will learn the foundations of Restorative Practices, analyze and reflect on their current classroom practices, and begin to think of ways to implement restorative practices. Participants will also build a sense of community as educators. This is a foundational level virtual learning community for those with little to no previous experience with restorative practices. Participants will have the opportunity to complete the NEA Exploring Restorative Practices micro-credential and can also earn up to 27 PDUs (or one graduate credit + 12 PDUs). This VLC will meet for 6 weeks (it's okay to be on vacations and trips during the VLC). Learners can expect to spend 2-3 hours per week on this VLC. The semester graduate credit ($50) is optional and dependent on completing the micro-credential. Learn more about the NEA micro-credentials.
