Keynote: Integrating Compassion into Your Teaching
October 25, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 9:45 am
Compassion can take many forms including kindness, caring, empathy, concern, sensitivity, and consideration. Teaching with compassion provides a safe environment for students to grow and learn from their mistakes. When students know they are cared about as individuals, they become open to challenges and push themselves to do their best. For this session, I will first provide context by sharing my story of teaching with compassion. Then I will provide specific examples of integrating compassion that anyone can make their own. Come prepared to do some deep thinking about your students, and learn how you can make small but meaningful changes in your teaching.
