Register to attend the next session of Campus Conversations, an online professional development series on key topics related to education in the face of rapidly changing technology.
In this live webcast, cohosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha and University of Nebraska Online, Dr. Michelle Pacansky-Brock, author of "Best Practices for Teaching with Emerging Technologies," presents "Humanizing Online Learning: Leveraging Relationships to Fuel Engagement and Rigor."
To navigate through these unknown and traumatic times, educators must be knowledgeable about how learning happens (and why it often does not). Recognizing the affective and cognitive dimensions of learning illuminates the need to understand our students as humans with rich, complicated stories and foster positive instructor-student relationships at a distance to ensure all students are poised for success. This session will illuminate how humanized online teaching provides a foundation of trust you can build upon in your course and foster rigor through empathy.
