Thanks for sharing, Katie!

YouTube Channels have been excellent and my students love them
I echo your point Cindy. As much as having Facetime and Zoom has been wonderful the authentic connections and the idea generation that happen in person at conferences are worth every penny
Are there any good podcasts?
Podcast PD! Love it!
Love the NACAC podcast , so that’s a great idea!
I saw Kenyon had a pofcast (professor podcast)
Chris - we are doing our info sessions in a similar way. A recorded info session with then a live virtual Q&A
I support the podcast idea too!!
not the same thing - but similar spirit
@ Barbara: YES. Thank you for mentioning the access piece. This pandemic is definitely helping us reconsider ways we can make our work so much more accessible to our students and families.
Access and equity need to remain at the heart of our work and I have been delighted to see how many schools are talking about reaching audiences they haven't in the past. THAT SHOULD CONTINUE. Zoom should not replace opportunities to network and build relationships with our colleagues.

Lots of new PD committee options!
The fact that NEACAC membership is so inexpensive really is a bonus (private high school here, no money for PD)
