“The shift to a virtual world was accelerated—not created—by the COVID-19 pandemic. While some educators might hope for things to get back to ‘business as usual,’ working virtually has become the usual way we do business. This means if our students are going to learn the skills and behaviors needed to succeed in a virtual world, then educators must continue to develop the skills needed to teach, collaborate, and excel in this space. That is the purpose of this outstanding book!”
“This accessible and adaptable book is both timely and timeless; it addresses what educational leaders need to know for the difficult pivots during the COVID-19 pandemic and provides a foundation that demonstrates how collaborative teams can continue to be the engine of improvement regardless of setting—in person, hybrid, or virtual.”
