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.
Adrienne Bradshaw

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
Lorraine Richardson

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!

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”
Tom Zappola

Thanks Audrey. Being positive is a fantastic way to gain trust and make a student feel good.

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.

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.
Tom Zappola
38:58
Great perspective Julia!

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.
