Virtual Teaching Strategies with Dr. Heather Michel


Are you ready to end the semester strong with virtual teaching? You gotta listen to these tips and strategies by Dr. Heather Michel. During this interview, Dr. Michel shares her teaching story and the important fact of teacher burnout. It is important to set boundaries, stay fresh, and take care of yourself so you can avoid burnout. We also discuss the importance of connecting with other educators on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and even at conferences.

Virtual learning and teaching strategies:

  • Foster relationships with students first - through bitmoji classrooms, google forms, emailing students, chat via DMs with students, free writing activity, and interactive journaling.

  • Procedures are seconds - how to do different things in the LMS, using technology, and more.

  • Teaching is highly relational and emotional

  • Small doses of high impact and engaging content

  • Communicate and share with parents

  • Have several touchpoints with your students, teacher and student, and students to students, students to content, and teacher, student and family.

  • Give students opportunities to collaborate

  • Provide students with leadership opportunities in the classroom
