Daily Check In Questions For Students During Distance Learning

Daily Check In Questions For Students During Distance Learning

It is important that you participate in this process because by sharing information about how you are doing we can best serve each other as well as ourselves! This will also help me better understand how best I can support students like yourself through their academic journey at Northeastern State University of Oklahoma!

This process will also benefit me by helping me learn more about my students so that I may better assist them throughout their college career here at NSUO​

The purpose of this check-in is to give you the opportunity to share how you are doing and any concerns or worries you may have. If our chat reveals that further counseling will be beneficial, we will make a plan together.

These questions are also important because they provide students with an open forum to discuss their mental health, which can be difficult for some people who may not want to reveal their challenges. By asking these questions at the start of every session, we are helping students feel more comfortable discussing their thoughts and feelings with us.

Today’s questions are: What’s something you are looking forward to? How can we help you be successful today?

Today’s questions are:

  • What’s something you are looking forward to?
  • How can we help you be successful today?
  • What are your goals?
  • What are your concerns?
  • What are your worries?
  • What are your strengths?
  • What are your weaknesses?

I will let you know when we have 4 minutes left.

Yes, it’s true. We are not just here to make you feel like a kid again—we are also here to remind you that your time is limited! When there are only 4 minutes left in the session, we will let you know.

If we can help it, we will not give this notification until there is no time left at all and then put up a screen with “end call” on it. This way, if you have any questions remaining unanswered or any points that were raised during discussion but weren’t addressed fully by everyone present yet (and this happens often), they can be covered before the end of class session. After all, nobody likes hanging up on something unfinished—it leaves an uneasy feeling in their stomachs and makes them wonder if they really got everything out of the experience that could have been achieved had things gone differently…But since life doesn’t always work out as planned…when we reach our last minute countdown mark:

During our session, please keep in mind the following agreement:

  • If I ask a question, I want an answer; if I don’t ask a question, please don’t tell me anything (i.e., don’t volunteer information).
  • If a student asks you a question and you need to clarify the question with them before answering it, do so privately. Never repeat another student’s questions aloud in class or in e-mail correspondence with my assistant or myself. This may be misinterpreted as gossiping and will reflect poorly on yourself as well as on your entire cohort group at our university – remember that we are all learning together!

1. If I ask a question, I want an answer; if I don’t ask a question, please don’t tell me anything (i.e., don’t volunteer information).

  • If I ask a question, I want an answer; if I don’t ask a question, please don’t tell me anything (i.e., don’t volunteer information).
  • Don’t assume that the counselor knows everything about you. They are not mind-readers! Don’t assume your counselor wants to know every detail of your life — they are working with many students at once and likely have other things going on in their private lives as well.
  • Counselors are not therapists and do not provide therapy services; if you need help with personal issues, seek out a licensed therapist.

2. If we get into a discussion about something that has been brought up by either of us, let’s stay on the topic; if we start talking about something else, let’s come back to the original topic at hand.

  • Don’t get off topic when we are talking about something that has been brought up by either of us. If we start talking about something else, let’s come back to the original topic at hand.
  • Don’t interrupt me or change the subject mid-sentence or change the subject while I’m speaking or go off on a tangent and don’t go off on a rant because it makes me lose my train of thought, which then hinders our learning process and makes me feel disrespected as well as frustrated with how things are going between us right now.

3. Let’s take turns speaking so we can really listen and understand what each of us are saying – it means a lot when someone really listens!

It’s important to take turns speaking, so that each of you can really listen and understand what the other is saying. When someone really listens to what you’re saying, it means a lot! And vice versa – when you are doing most of the talking and the other person is just listening – it feels like they don’t care about your thoughts at all.

So let’s take turns listening and speaking so we can really listen and understand each other!
