Dr. Rhonda Bondie is a lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) and faculty chair for the professional education program, Differentiated Instruction Made Practical. Rhonda leads HGSE’s Agile Teacher Lab, where her team researches teacher decision-making through the use of immersive technologies such as mixed reality and 360 video.
Rhonda began teaching as an artist-in-residence and then spent over 20 years in urban public schools as both a special and general educator. Rhonda is known for both her practical writing for teachers and research examining teacher learning. She has demonstrated how teachers can provide motivationally, cognitively, and culturally supportive learning experiences for every learner.
Rhonda describes her approach to transforming professional development through mixed reality simulations aimed at furthering teacher ability to listen and respond to students. She supports educators in applying theory and research to daily teaching practices.
Excellent online teaching isn’t based on the ability to navigate a Zoom room or create a Google doc. Excellent teaching happens through teacher decision-making — how teachers decide to respond to and engage with students, select curriculum materials, organize learning, and use communication strategies. In this session, we explore how teacher decisions in both planning and practice impact student learning in the online environment.
