Avatars can help you with emotions in the spring … Stay tuned
What do you do when a student or friend seems to be troubled, but does not say anything? What do you do when they ask you for help? You might worry and feel incompetent in helping, right? You can learn how to show that you care and feel more confident in supporting that person in as little as 30 minutes.
Kognito, an online interactive training service, will be available this year to all Illinois State students and faculty. Avatars will help you learn through role-play conversations how to be the support students and friends need you to be when they are in distress.
The program will launch in the spring semester and will include different modules with simulations that will provide you with feedback as you engage with the avatars. Stay tuned for new information as we join efforts in creating a more supportive Illinois State community.
