Inspired by the thinking of Michelle Pacansky-Brock, the “Humanizing Your Courses” series will explore ways to create human-centered learning experiences. This second workshop will feature a panel of some of our most “present” faculty members. We’ll explore examples from their classroom experiences, including face-to-face and online formats. They will provide tips and guidance on how to create a welcoming and human presence in the classroom, sense when students need extra support, and learn how to listen to and understand our students more directly. In addition, they will also discuss the challenges of remaining so highly focused on student needs.
Attendees will discuss:
- Strategies to be more “present” in the classroom or online.
- Approaches to displaying empathy and sensing when students need help.
- Activities to facilitate knowing students better and creating formative feedback loops
- Tips to be more aware of your OWN needs.
- Tips for dealing with the challenges and issues associated with increased empathy
