As ways of working have adapted to COVID-19 restrictions it’s worthwhile reflecting on how we as educators are engaging with others, especially as we move between the virtual and face to face environments. ‘Walk in others shoes’ is also an important aspect to consider as we just dont know how others are feeling or the tough times they have face, so starting from a place of understanding and being kind & compassionate of how others are feeling seems a good place to start.
If we want to be kind & compassionate in tough times, we need a culture of empathy. Empathy means starting from a place of understanding of how others are feeling & applies whether we're working virtually or face to face.
