What can we do to support students and instructors as they learn online? When we consider student learning in online environments, it is not enough to be learner-centred. How can we support the whole student? How can we focus on activities that are accessible to students within limitations of time, bandwidth and devices? In this session we will explore how instructors can create space for themselves and their students to lead less stressful lives, while acknowledging that learning and living at this time are very closely intertwined. Participants in this session will co-create and leave with a list of recommended resources to support both students and themselves.
