    I really enjoyed the conversation with Peter on Pedagogy of Care.
    One small thing I have done to show care, is adding an audio file when I give feedback to assignments. In return, students have mentioned that they really enjoyed receiving the audio feedback and felt it was a nice personal touch. I still use a rubric and provide written feedback, but I add an audio file that is under 1 minute with a word of encouragement as well as a note “for next time”.
    I would like to consider more ways to make virtual office hours flexible and meaningful. I have limited time available for “after hours” meetings and admire Peter for his flexibility and for making himself available throughout the week AND weekends!

    What I already do to show care for online students is to do a “check-in” with them at the start of class but I’d like to explore something that warms up them up more to talk but in a low stakes way (for all us introverts) and provides a warm and welcoming ritual (predictable and comforting) to the start of our time together.
