The importance of human touch in community

Dr. Abraham Verghese tells wonderful stories of how important human touch is when diagnosing patients and later care with those patients. He claims that the shift towards technology in medicine has eroded a very important, but simple aspect–human touch. I wonder if we’re missing that human contact in higher education these days? Classes of 200-1,000 students, hybrid or online delivery. Where and how do we build connections and relationships with each other?
