Family Matters: Effective Ways to Learn from Home
On April 22, 2020, UBC experts from the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Education participated in the third webinar in our COVID-19 series. They discussed ways to support families navigating the complexities of living, working, and learning from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Adjusting to more time at home together, some families struggle with how to structure the day, facilitate learning opportunities, and nurture healthy relationships. Our experts offer practical tools and an empathetic guide for stressed out parents in the “new normal” of family life.
