Caring for Students

Presenters: Michelle Pacansky-Brock, CVC-OEI; Melody Bucker, University of Arizona; University of Michigan, Dearborn; Maha Bali, American University in Cairo

“To teach in a manner that respects and cares for the souls of our students is essential if we are to provide the necessary conditions where learning can most deeply and intimately begin.”  bell hooks – Teaching to Transgress

As more students learn online in a time of uncertainty and peril, educators must intentionally craft learning experiences at a distance that foster trust, belonging, and a sense of care. In this OLC Ideate panel session, you will engage in a mindful consideration of several humanizing strategies to ensure students feel a sense of care in online courses, including ways in which care can enhance agency, promote social justice and critique weaponization of care.

This event is part of the virtual OLC Ideate program. Free registration is required. Archives will be made available to OLC members.

Once you register for OLC IDEATE, you will be given further instructions about how to access the salons in OLC’s Learning Management System.
