This year required flexibility. From remote, to hybrid, to in-person instruction, educators had to look at how to re-design learning and assessment experiences to make it work for our students.
How did we incorporate student online voice and engagement? What authentic experiences did we cultivate? What innovative ideas can we take into next year? With the end of our first whole school year during the pandemic approaching, let’s reflect on the community.
In this edWebinar, attendees will learn:
- How to design assessments with student voice at the center
- How to set up rubrics for meaningful feedback
- Methods and tools to design authentic learning experiences
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, teachers on special assignment, and school and district leaders of all grade levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.

Alicia is currently the assistant director for the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurial Thinking at the San Diego Jewish Academy. She is the co-founder of the Inclusive STEM & CS Summit and is a justice-driven teacher who works to create opportunities on and off campus for students to have access and success in STEM and computer science. She has been awarded by state and federal programs for her work creating comprehensive STEM programming for under-resourced school communities. Outside of her K-12 work, she is an adjunct professor, passionate about supporting and mentoring new teachers. She is driven by collaboration and shares at conferences around the topics of equitable grading, authentic assessment, student agency and voice, STEM literacy, and mastery-based teaching and learning.
For over 18 years, Jamie Nunez has redefined education practices by designing creative opportunities for educators to connect with their students. As a former high school teacher, school administrator, and after-school director, Jamie has trained thousands of educators on student engagement in digital spaces. The common threads across his practice are the belief that learning is most powerful when it’s founded on a child’s experience outside of the classroom, and student engagement is most impactful when it fosters their digital identity. When not working, Jamie can be found in the ocean teaching his six-year-old daughter how to surf.
