As we collectively heal from difficulties caused by the pandemic, our need for relationships is evident. Students are adjusting to learning loss and feelings of isolation that resulted from significant time spent in virtual learning communities. Faculty members are recovering from challenges related to research productivity, caregiving responsibilities, and rediscovering their work community after being disconnected for extended periods. While we might be eager to explore relationship-building in personal contexts, academic communities can also benefit from reconnection.

The goal of this session is to think about the valuable role relationships play in creating dynamic, rigorous, and joyful learning environments that yield significant academic outcomes. As a 2022 winner of the Deans' Award for Teaching Excellence, Dr. English will share her experience in personal development coaching, inspiration from inclusive teaching practices, and passion for creating active learning environments to guide a discussion focused on building inclusive, vibrant learning communities that are rooted in relationships.

By participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Discuss the benefit of applying a coaching philosophy to your pedagogy
  • See examples of active learning and teaching strategies
  • Explore ways to enhance your teaching practices through guided reflection activities
  • Identify ways to strengthen teacher-student and student-student relationships going forward
