Innovations in Distance Education Community of Practice

Welcome to the Innovations in Distance Education Community of Practice

For the latest meeting dates, webinar info, and assets from prior meetings – scroll down this page to the Webinar section.

Innovations in Distance Education Consortium  is a convening of state-level stakeholders to develop and implement novel strategies that combine datacasting to support remote teaching and learning for students without access to the internet.  The state-level stakeholders across multiple states will have an opportunity to benefit from learning best practices in policy and practice development around datacasting.

To learn more about educational datacasting, check out this video.

Joining this community of practice will advance work nationally to reach the most underserved and disconnected learners. These convenings will enable us to: 

  • Learn from each other’s successes in policy and practice, including communication and roll-out strategies.
  • Coordinate among policy leaders, educational program experts, and technical experts, both across and within states.
  • Share critical questions and barriers.
  • Develop methods to evaluate the outcomes and impacts at pilot sites.
  • Jointly assess the benefits and risks of datacasting as an educational policy, and discuss its applications beyond the current crisis. 
  • Discuss datacasting applications beyond the traditional education system.
