This webinar helps instructors incorporate effective teaching practices for adult learners, as well as technology that doesn't make students feel like children. Using elevated K-12 teaching practices allows community and technical college educators to elicit critical thinking from students and increase student engagement.
Students come where they are welcome and stay where they feel cared about. Caring Campus is based on decades of research documenting that students who feel cared for and connected to their college are more likely to achieve their educational goals. In over 70 colleges around the country, learn how professional staff are committing to easy, low-cost behaviors that bring the human component to student interactions to improve student success and increase job satisfaction.
A 2022 Gallup poll found that educators reported the highest level of burnout of any industry, and 35% of college and university workers reported “always” or “very often” feeling burned out at work. We hear the word burnout frequently, but what does it mean? Why is everyone talking about it these days? Learn how to identify burnout and how to stop or prevent it for yourself and your team.
Over the past few years, faculty and students have been through trauma together. Some of us may have experienced several traumatic experiences during the most stressful time of our lives. Some, like me, may have used all their protective factors and resilience stores and finally hit rock bottom, completely exhausted and cynical. This is burnout. When burnout occurs, our stress in the workplace or classroom feels unmanageable. Once at this broken level, we are prone to experiencing a moral injury. This webinar shares essential practices for climbing back up the spiral and finding joy again.
Everybody is doing it: Companies like Google provide professional development around mindfulness for their employees, professional athletes practice mindfulness, and even the military trains soldiers through mindfulness. A growing body of neuroscience and other research suggests that mindfulness also holds an array of benefits for higher education, including individual benefits (such as increased self-regulation, attention, and creativity) and communal benefits (such as the promise of more inclusive environments). When students are emotionally engaged in the classroom, they have a greater sense of belonging because content connects to their personal lives and academic pursuits. During this workshop, participants learn how to incorporate mindfulness into their classrooms to support student engagement and success.
