Emotions in Online Teaching
In general, academia tends toward the emotionless, focusing on the content of ideas over feelings. But we are emotional beings, and emotions impact everything we do. Why wouldn’t emotions play into our experiences teaching and learning online? In fact, we can be intentional in the way we incorporate emotions into the design and teaching of online classes. Emotions are powerful. Let’s put them to work for us to create more engaging online experiences that inspire our students, motivate them to succeed, and help them learn and remember content much more effectively.
