Being Generationally Savvy with Jennifer Abrams

Thursday, Sep. 24th, 3:30-6:30pm

This is an online event.

Target Audience: Teachers and Administrators

Gen Savvy Program Description

In some schools, as many as four generations work side by side, and that means countless chances for crossed wires, miscommunication, and perhaps even mistrust. This webinar provides strategies for bridging the generation gap and embracing generational diversity in our schools.

Join author Jennifer Abrams as she demonstrates how educators can look past their own generational filters to reap the benefits of seeing through a new lens. Focusing on the major contexts in which generational differences play out—including recruitment, coaching, professional learning, and succession planning— participants will gain tools and recommendations for collaborating, evaluating, and engaging in professional learning that meets multigenerational needs.

Topics in this webinar include:

  • Professional learning strategies that cultivate an understanding of generational differences and strengthen workplace culture;
  • Resources and tools to enhance communication with all generations.

Cost: No cost to Greater Rochester Teacher Center Members. Limit of 3 registrants per Teacher Center. Please contact your local Teacher Center for approval prior to registering.

Due to limited seating, we will not open this program up outside of GRTCN.
