To support educators navigating a new virtual learning environment this fall, the Sex Education Collaborative has released a short video sharing 5 tips for teaching sex education remotely!
In addition to the video, educators can find resources to support their teaching efforts via the online Training Hub at SexEducationCollaborative.org. The SEC website gathers trusted trainings and resources from national, regional, and state-based sex education experts for access wherever educators and administrators are working.
The SEC envisions a world in which all young people’s right to comprehensive, high-quality sex education is recognized and fulfilled. This vision can only be realized if educators have the knowledge, training, and support to effectively deliver sex education – whether in-person or remote.
Training and professional development offerings can be found at SexEducationCollaborative.org.
