As faculty and students continue to navigate remote and online teaching and learning spaces, we are evermore curious about how we can bridge the virtual divide and create meaningful learning experiences that also create community.Be present, Be human, Be adaptableis a helpful motto to guide our approaches to teaching in virtual spaces. Our discussion will focus on this motto with emphasis on some key elements of each area that can enhance your remote and online teaching practice, as well as build more joy and fulfillment for you and your students, alike.
