Humanistic Approach to Online Educate

Session Description
This presentation will explore how to create a person-centered environment in an online classroom. We will discuss what our definition of a humanistic online classroom, issues distance education can present, and how we, as counselors and educators, can model humanistic behavior from a distance. Additionally, techniques that we use to create an encouraging environment in which students feel heard, understood, and confident will be explored and discussed. Participants will come out of the presentation with ideas and strategies they can implement in their own online person-centered classroom
