You’ve learned all those new technologies for teaching online - thank you, pandemic! And yet, your online students seem more distant and disengaged than ever, and you may still be feeling exhausted and overwhelmed yourself.

If you are looking to get back to the basics of better, more humane online teaching - including more humane for yourself - come join us for a conversation on humanizing your course. Think: class conversations that feel more authentic, and groups working on projects together they actually care about (yes, online!), all accomplished with technological ease.

The best part is, you won’t have to overhaul your entire course. You’ll walk away with a pocketful of practical, work-smarter tips you can try right now to feel more genuinely connected with your students while taking better care of yourself.
