Infusing Your Course with Empathy to Drive Student Success (without Losing Content, Standards, or Your Mind!)

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/16/2022)
Presented by Marianne Downes, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM

Data indicates that students perform better and are more engaged when they believe that an instructor supports them. This session will provide simple techniques and tools that will allow you to demonstrate instructor support of student success in both in-person and online asynchronous classrooms, which do not alter course standards or take away from content.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Define student success
  • List three techniques which can be implemented in the in person or online classroom to promote student success
  • Describe why an emphasis on wellness, learning skills, and success aids in student learning and retention
