Teaching Strategies to Support Student Well-Being

We are moving rapidly through the semester, and many students are in the process of returning to some version of on-campus instruction. Amid the pressures and transition, there are many instructional strategies that you can incorporate to support the well-being of your students. This important session held on February 19, 2021, is filled with supportive strategies you can immediately implement in your teaching (bonus: many of these ideas will support your well-being, too!).
