"By sponsoring faculty through a technologically challenging and professionally supported workshop to hybridize one of their courses (through both online and in-class components), UC Davis provided an avenue for participants to develop empathy for the students they teach. That newfound empathy helped faculty participants identify and clearly state objectives, design appropriate learning modules, and build assessments that supported their goals. Empathy allowed them to center the work on their students."
