2020: The Year of Online Teacher Training? ASU Entrepreneur-in-Residence David Levin Has Taken Up the PD Cause with Two Massive Virtual Events

David Levin has led one of the largest educational publishers in the world. Before that, he made a name for himself by completely revamping the business operations of a 200 year-old U.K. publisher. But for the past year, he has been obsessed with online teacher training.

“The lack of emphasis on pedagogy to support online and hybrid learning—that is just striking,” Levin said over videoconference (pictured right). When the Covid-19 pandemic broke out early this year, the ASU Entrepreneur-in-Residence quickly organized a massive free event, REMOTE, to help connect postsecondary educators with skilled online learning practitioners. The event drew 26,000 participants. Now, Levin is working to repeat the conference for K-12 teachers. ASU’s REMOTE K12: The Connected Teacher Summit will go down on January 9. It is free to attend, and registration is currently open. Educators who attend can earn a professional credential from ASU.
