CTLT Winter Institute – Virtual Classroom Wellbeing: What Can I Do?
December 15, 2020 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The UBC Okanagan Centre for Teaching and Learning is proud to promote the UBC Vancouver Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology Winter Institute events to our Okanagan instructors.
“I care about my students’ wellbeing but I don’t have time! How do I fit that into my course too? I don’t know what I could do?” Maybe these are some of the thoughts going through your mind as you prepare for teaching winter courses online. We know that student wellbeing is suffering even more since virtual learning dominates and, as faculty, we have experienced “fuller plates” with the increased demands of navigating online teaching. We are keen to share with you our TEACHERS Project to guide you in adopting simple practices for online teaching to address student wellbeing. If we all do a little bit, collectively, we can have a huge impact on the health, resiliency and academic success of our students.
