How To Hold Virtual Learning Space In These Times?
Hope all is well with you. I'm sure you're working on ceasing this moment of history when people are full of fear, and confusion to cultivate love and service.
At our college in Southern California, our classes are being moved over to online environment. A lot of my students are very unhappy that we don't get to have the discussion and intimacy that we've created together for the past 7 weeks. I want to continue on being that way with them online.
My material is already online for most part, so I don't have any problem with that, but I like to move myself in a loving way to online, so that we can have our conversations. I wanted to brainstorm with you, in how to create a caring virtual effect as in person.
Would be great to hear any insights you have on cultivating intimate dialogue, dynamic engagement, and transformative learning in online classrooms!
