UCLA Center X Shares Expertise, Help for Parents with Remote Learning

A 30-minute virtual conversation on Sept. 16 part of the UCLA Connections series aimed at building community, fostering resilience.

A UCLA Connections event will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 1 p.m. PDT/4 p.m. EDT on “How can parents successfully cope with remote learning?”

Are you a parent struggling with your pandemic-induced dual role as caretaker and part-time teacher of your school-age child? Need a pep talk backed by research to make it through another school term with your kids? UCLA’s Daniel Diaz and Erin Powers were each humbled to find themselves struggling in these new parent-as-teacher roles, even though they are both trained educators and educators of educators.

Join them, along with Annamarie Francois, executive director of UCLA Center X at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, in a conversation about how to tap into the skills you already have as a parent to facilitate learning for your child during this global health crisis.
