Trauma-Aware Teaching: A Seminar
How to Approach the Classroom During Challenging Times
Saturday, October 17, 2020 · 10 AM - 11:30 AM
Sign-up for an upcoming information session, sponsored by the Adjunct Faculty Advisory Committee (AFAC)!
Although AFAC had to cancel our in-person Adjunct Conference for this year, we're offering an exciting alternative: a one-hour session on a timely and relevant topic. See below for details.
Session Title: Trauma-Aware Teaching
Session Description: Trauma is not new, but in light of the COVID-19 crisis, many are realizing the widespread nature of trauma and its countless impacts. This interactive session is focused on introducing key trauma concepts to higher educators, including what trauma is (and isn't), its prevalence, and how it impacts both teaching and learning. You'll leave this session having moved forward on your path to becoming a trauma-aware educator, better prepared to support yourselves, your students, and your colleagues. The 60-minute interactive session will be followed by a 30-minute "deep dive" Q & A session. Bring your questions, energy, and insights about teaching with trauma (our own and our students').
Session Date/Time: Saturday, October 17th, 2020, 10am ET to 11:30 am ET
