Pedagogies of Care and Compassion
April 20, 3:30 PM - 4:30 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? This session aims to define the scope of this approach to teaching, consider the existing literature on this topic, and offer tangible classroom strategies.
