Feedback, Encouragement & Communication: The Keys to a Successful CTE Program
In a remote or online environment, communication, feedback, and encouragement are critical for students to feel importance and relevance. Unlike in a classroom setting, there is no peer-to-peer physical interaction so now, more than ever, the teacher often becomes their only interaction and support structure. I’ll share my experiences and frustrations and how I’ve overcome those situations with quick, informative responses to support students both emotionally and academically and staff who are working online.
