PhD+ Workshop – Impassioned Online Teaching: Empathy, Embodiment and Radical Pedagogy in Practice

November 13, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm  |  Virtual Event


How do we, as educators, create virtual experiences that are inclusive, engaging, and impactful for our students? How can we make remote conditions more intimate, accessibility more equitable, and our classrooms more collaborative? What do design strategies grounded in compassion and creativity look like? From decolonizing the syllabus to somatic abolitionism and interactive storytelling, this workshop will offer practical techniques for learning and liberation. Please join us as we reimagine the possibilities of a mindfulness-based approach to teaching in the digital age.

This workshop is co-presented by The Humanities Institute (THI) and the Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning (CITL) at UC Santa Cruz and open to University of California faculty, staff, and students.

Panel led by UC Santa Cruz’s 2020 National Humanities Center GSSR Fellows:
