Pedagogies of Care and Compassion
September 22, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
During the pandemic, many instructors offered students flexibility and kindness that in the past may have been viewed as lenient or even indulgent: instructors relaxed late penalties, revised syllabi to be less punitive and more positive, and worked to recognize students as individuals with responsibilities and priorities outside of the classroom. How can we preserve this “whole-student” approach in order for higher education to be more inclusive, accessible, and mindful of all student needs?
Participants will be able to:
- Define the scope of a caring, compassionate approach to teaching
- Consider the existing literature on this topic
- Implement effective classroom strategies
