Course Description

CEU Course Description

Research is telling us that one of the most important factors in a student’s educational experience is the support they find at home. Parental engagement is now widely considered to be of vital importance when working towards student success. In order to boost parental engagement, however, teachers and parents need to have a strong, meaningful, mutually-supportive relationship. This can be difficult to form and sustain. In this course, we’ll go over the research that discusses why a parent-teacher relationship and family-school engagement is so important, as well as several strategies to help teachers connect and engage with parents to support every student in their classes. 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Discover the relationship between meaningful parent-school relationships, parent involvement, and parent engagement
  2. Discuss the research-backed benefits that accompany an increase in parent engagement
  3. Delve into the research and case studies that have worked to elucidate the ways in which parent engagement enhances student outcomes
  4. Talk about the benefits that await students, teachers, parents, and schools if schools invest more in parent engagement initiatives
  5. Brainstorm methods for increasing parent involvement and engagement
  6. Look at ways that schools who have successfully increased parent involvement have done so
  7. Strategize methods for conflict resolution with parents, and realize the best ways to help convince parents to attend school events
  8. Go over methods for parent engagement and involvement in remote learning scenarios
