12:10-1:40 - One and a half hour session
When students come into our classrooms, they bring more than their intellects; they bring their past experiences, their fears and hopes, their current struggles and passions, and a range of identities, all of which shape their learning. These aspects of your students can shape your teaching, too—and it doesn't have to be a daunting task. Recognizing students as whole human beings and taking their well-being into consideration doesn't require a huge course overhaul. In this session, we'll talk about the benefits of small adjustments, brief exercises, and mini-conversations aimed at student well-being. We'll also share and play with ideas that teachers can implement in any course.
