Studies show that students are more invested in their online classes when they feel connected to, and supported by, their instructor and fellow students. While human and social presence aligns with equitable teaching strategies, humanizing goes beyond subject matter to inspire and motivate learning. In this class, you will develop effective practices to convey presence, empathy, awareness, and support for your online learners.
Faculty who complete this training program will earn a badge and a certificate of completion. Participants must finish all tasks with a grade of at least 85% to earn a badge and certificate.
