Webinar #1 – Lean on Me

May 7, 2020 (10:00-11:30 am)

Webinar Flyer

The Covid-19 pandemic is having a huge impact on communities, countries, and the entire planet.  We are all doing our best to forge ahead to maintain “business as usual” or as “usual” as it can be.  It can seem like a constant stream of switching gears, trying new things, learning new skills, and navigating policy.  Perhaps you have come up with some excellent or novel ideas for helping yourself, learners, staff or members of the community to cope during these unusual times.  Or perhaps you’d like to hear some of these ideas to help yourself or others who are struggling.

Join us on May 7th at 10:00 am for a session we’re calling “Lean on Me.”  The session will be informal and facilitated by Tamara Kaattari.  We hope to see you there!

Webinar #2 – Lean on Each Other: Supporting Adult Students During COVID-19

June 9, 2020 – 10:00 – 11:30 – Register Here

Although we are starting to see a gradual and measured lifting of COVID-19 restrictions in Ontario, the pandemic continues to impact individuals, families, and communities in a host of different and challenging ways. In LBS programs, we are attempting to stay connected with learners as best we can by using virtual, remote services.
We know that our learners need coping strategies and emotional supports, some now more than ever. How are you supporting learners to cope with the changes and challenges brought on by COVID-19? Do you have tools, strategies or approaches that you can share? Would you like to hear ideas about how others are providing these much needed supports?
