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.
January cohorts are currently underway, but resources and tools explored through the asynchronous primer, small, medium, and large bite sessions from November and December 2020 can be found at online.unomaha.edu/humanizing at any time.
More information about future cohorts will be shared through the Maverick Daily.
This three-week session provides $300 stipend to join a cohort of professionals to maximize momentum through the middle and final weeks of your course.
Registration for this cohort is now closed.
