Keynote Presentation Overview
Title: Finding Ourselves through Identity-Rich Online Teaching
Teaching is hard work. And the uncertainties of the pandemic have made it even harder. For many faculty, however, teaching online has opened new opportunities for connecting with students and becoming a more authentic teacher. This presentation will examine cultural constructs that influence how you approach your classes, relate to your students, and care for yourself. Together, we will explore alternative ways to find your whole self in your teaching in any modality. Dr. Michelle Pacansky-Brock
