This week, we explore building trust. The trust you have built with your students offline may seem absent now that learning is remote. We invite you to tackle this by modifying your teaching presence to take remote learning into account.

Our first article explores how to build trust more generally, perhaps you even used some of these tactics when learning was in-person.

Our next selection is a resource from Pearson Education about Teaching Presence (note: while the resource is designed for higher education, many of the ideas are relevant for all age groups). Finally bringing it all together is an article about building teaching presence in remote learning based in research.

  3. Article: 5 Research-Backed Tips to Improve Your Online Teaching Presence
