Humanizing is a student-centered mindset that involves recognizing and supporting the non-cognitive components of learning. Humanizing integrates elements of Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning and Universal Design for Learning and focuses on presence, empathy, and awareness.
Digital Learning and faculty experts explore this concept through a new series: "Humanizing Digital Learning," which will utilize relevant literature, pedagogical practices, and tips and tricks to help prepare you to design an engaging online course.
In December and January 2020, faculty joined campus conversations and actively built course materials for their Spring 2021 courses. We're offering these sessions again this spring. Limited space available.
Materials from past courses, and additional resources, are available on the Humanizing Online page of the Keep Teaching website.

3-week session begins April 5
