Strategies for Working Remotely: Challenges Faced by Parents Who are Working Remotely, and Overcoming Them

The IDEAS ECP Productivity project has launched an informal working remotely panel series with a target of covering a new topic every other Friday.  The next installment in the series took place April 24th and was titled, “Challenges Faced by Parents Who are Working Remotely, and Overcoming Them”.

Abstract:  While working remotely is challenging enough, many are currently experiencing unique complexities involved with parenting, transitioning to online school at home, and working productively while practicing social distancing in response to COVID-19.  In the second installment of the IDEAS-ECP panel discussion series, we brought together four ECP staff members, a new staff member on-boarding with a National Lab, and a Montessori educator to share ideas and resources.  Panelists made brief introductory comments followed by open discussion.
