My instructor Emily was so diligent. She told me: 'I want you to know that you're not alone.' It got to me. She knows it's not easy.
There was a lot more student engagement and I saw a lot of success. I was really grateful for the training I received in DeXL.
DeXL focuses on the whole student, and not just the content and the learning. When they get out into their career, they'll have that strong confidence to help them succeed long term.
I loved the online classroom experience - it's unique and refreshing. I had the same connection and community in the online environment that I would have had on a campus.
DeXl turns traditional learning upside down. When we acknowledge our students' multifaceted lives, we create a caring environment that promotes self-advocacy, collaboration and community. By putting students in the driver's seat, we reduce stress, increase engagement and create a positive learning environment where success is easily achievable.
Through DeXL, I acquired a new mindset of innovation and growth. I started to apply perseverance, grit, and tenacity in my teaching techniques and encourage my students to consider them as blueprints of academic achievements. Overall the DeXL model has allowed me to understand, treat, respect, and communicate with students differently and to become a more successful and effective faculty.
