Trauma-Informed Pedagogy: Student- and Self-Care in Times of Crisis

When: June 11, 2021, 9:00 am - Friday

Where: Shamblin Theater

Session 6

Session Abstract

Crisis stacks an emotional- and cognitive-load on our students that hinders their performance in the classroom and affects their general well-being. As attentive professors, we need to recognize student trauma in our classrooms and develop creative teaching strategies to shepherd hurting students from crisis to flourishing. At the same time, we must remain attentive to our own levels of trauma, practicing intentional self-care so that we have the resources necessary to care for our students. In this session, representatives from Centers of Teaching and Learning at different colleges will lead a panel discussion exploring how we can care for our students and ourselves in the midst of crisis.
