February 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Look…this pandemic has been hard on all of us. Each of us battling our own unique challenges; and, after 11 months, it’s no wonder that we’re all exhausted by our “new normal”. Students are no different, and for many, morale is low.
No surprise to many of us, EdWeek is reporting that more than 50% of students and 75% of instructors within a remote-learning environment have lower morale than before the pandemic. The U.K. Office of National Statistics reported that more than half of the students surveyed identified that their well-being and mental health has worsened these past 11 months. And, according to a report by The Jed Foundation, 63% of students say their mental health is worse since the start of the pandemic. No surprise, student morale is low.
In this session, we will hone in on five (5) tips to help increase student morale within the online learning environment, and how sometimes those simple changes can make all the difference. Please also bring your thinking-caps because we will open the floor for the opportunity to share conversations and our own experiences in making the remote learning environment better for students.
