      this is very helpful resource. the human connection is very often forgotten in most activities. this resources not only identifys key principles underpinning importance of human relations between instructor and leaner but goes further to give experiences of how to apply these principles. thank you great resource indeed

    This is awesome Michelle. I shared your previous version and got such a great response. I will definitely be sharing this and utilizing it for my own courses.

    1. Hi Chelsea. Thank you. I’m working on some additions to this page, including embed code. I do need to warn you that the graphic does not render well on mobile. It’s not responsive, which is why I produced the text version using WordPress.

    The recommendations for the creation of “imperfect videos” make it sound too intentional — like “stick in some deliberate mistakes to humanize yourself.” I think “informal video” makes the key point. Wouldn’t it be better simply to encourage teachers to avoid overly slick, glossy productions that smack of self-aggrandizement? I prefer my videos to be as close to perfect as possible, but Murphy is always on the job, making sure that glitches slip in, but few are crucial. Just tell people, “Don’t sweat insignificant details; your videos will be fine without being perfect.”

    Hi Michelle,
    Thank you. As always, another precious resource for re-tooling oneself. I love the non-deficit perspective from which you define humanizing online learning by noting that students “are capable, resilient humans who bring an array of perspectives and knowledge to your class”. This has always been my premise for defining my role as a teacher – not as all-knowing but a co-learner with my students. I promise myself one day am going to write a full article to honor the debt I owe to you for learning so much from you. You have made me fall in love with my job all over again. Don’t yet have a domain of my own, but will get there…

    I would love to see something like this for MS and HS teaching. In our district, there has been little to no reflection of best practices in on-line education beyond some of the mechanics.

  5. Kendahl Radcliffe

    I realize I do much of this already however not in the way you depict it here. I realize that my message may not have been getting to students. I will use these tools in the future. Thanks!!!

    Once again you have thrilled us all Michelle! Your previous infographic was wonderful! This is even better. I will point hundreds of faculty to your resources. Thank you!

    I have recently started learning about Humanizing Online Learning and I am in love with it! Thanks a million for sharing so many wonderful materials!

  8. Jennifer Harris

    Michelle, thank you for this beautiful tool. I will be sharing with my colleagues at the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto.

    This is incredibly helpful as a resource for faculty development (I’ve already embedded it in our course for faculty), and especially the examples of best practice for them to see what it could look like. Stellar! Many thanks!

    Humanizing online learning has been one of the greatest challenges, especially in asynchronous learning. I am def. looking forward to new tools, along with what I’ve managed to capture above, throughout this training series.

    This is a great concept that places the learner at the center of the learning process. It also personifies the learning activity by creating a close bond between the learner and the instructors. Emphasis is on learner support and successful completion of learning

  12. Jose Monteiro

    It was great attending via zoom your presentation today (MCO Conference 6/2/22). Thank you for sharing your knowledge and making all these tools & resources available!

  13. Tim Sherman

    Very helpful tools to increase inclusion. I will certainly be using many of these in my course this fall even though it is not a fully online course.

  14. Brandi Kiel Reese

    There are so many great ideas in here – it is hard to pick one. Something that I can implement this fall is the Wisdom Wall and I would like to try the ice breaker suggestion.

  15. Violeta

    I have greatly enjoyed the live presentation; also, thank you so much for sharing a detailed outline on this website. The structured breakdown of the course-humanizing process into eight specific elements is extremely helpful.
