School district leaders and administrators partner with Ed Farm to identify educators who are passionate about innovative teaching and learning. These educators form an annual cohort known as “Teacher Fellows” and Ed Farm equips them with innovative resources and teaching strategies that support active learning for all students. Teacher Fellows also collaborate with one another and provide professional learning experiences for other teachers in their schools and districts.

The 3Es of Mini Digital Learning Experience Design
Educators across the country are teaching remotely (in some cases, for the firs time), and many of them are seeking innovative tools and strategies to support the transition. This is the first session of the Ed Farm Virtual Professional Learning Series designed to equip educators with new knowledge, skills, and tools for the transition to digital learning. The session was prerecorded on April 24, 2020 for Birmingham City Schools teachers. It is facilitated by Beth Sanders, Ed Farm Programs Manager, and Candyce Monroe, Ed Farm Education Program Coordinator.
