I teach at a community college in Canada and most of my students are presently all over the world. The excuses that are presented to me makes it hard at times to be empathetic.
I listen attentively to their needs.
Listening is great! Thanks Shalini!
Showing empathy at intake and registration is extremely important to not only gain trust but to truly show the student you care and can empathize with what they are going through
This is a great webinar. I show empathy in a plethora of ways: I send emails with inspirational quotes. I give out certificates and personalized awards to boost morale and academic attainment, I also call and text to check up on them, just to name a few!
Gaining trust is very important!
Great insight Lorraine!
Or an open-heart policy.
Open-door policy - or open-heart policy.
I try to consider the time investment a student makes even if the final product is not “excellent.” When I leave feedback, I use the student’s name first, and I try to emphasize and acknowledge the time the person invested in the assignment before I leave constructive comments. “I can tell you spent a lot of time on this part of the assignment. You really did a nice job with x, y, z”
Thanks Audrey. Being positive is a fantastic way to gain trust and make a student feel good.

Hello Everyone! Elizabeth from CSCC
Will we have access to the recording and the slide deck at a later date?
Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for joining us.
Yes, you will have access to the recording. Thanks William
I let my students know that I genuinely care about them and their success in my courses. I often ask for their opinion and thoughts on our subject matter and request feedback on my teaching methodology to ensure that I'm teaching in a manner that will best help them understand the material.
Student just want to know you care.
Great points Pamela!
Thanks Sophia. Absolutely True
I try to focus on the Platinum Rule versus the Golden Rule. The Golden Rule is about treating others they way you want to be treated. The Platinum Rule is about treating others they way they want and need to be treated. This changes the focus from what students need from the teacher rather than what the teacher thinks they need.
Great perspective Julia!
Great idea Rebekah
That really works throughout life.
Great insight, Julia!
Yes! @Julia Basham. Platinum Rule is one of my favorites.
Me too, Kent. It really changes the focus.
I like the LI profile idea for introductions. (Mine is LinkedIn.com/in/kentblumberg)
This is very reassuring and encouraging.
Loved the Open Heart Policy!
Thanks so much.

Thank you so much!
Check ins are very imp. because students may not reach out and need help. When you check in, they may open up and will get help they need.
Thanks for the input and help. Great webinar. The open heart policy is great.
Great job...excellent webinar!!!
Thanks, this was great!
Thanks, very useful
Thanks Michelle and Tom. Loved the webinar. The coolest take away was the idea of asking, "how are you and your family doing?"
