Empathy and Sympathy: What’s the Difference?

Empathy is recognized as a crucial life skill and is a driver for more meaningful and positive relationships. This workshop explores the difference between empathy and sympathy and the roles they play in nurturing connected, engaged learners and learning communities. Educators will reflect on their own abilities to demonstrate empathy while gaining tools to teach empathy explicitly to their students through the lens of disability.
