Trauma-Informed Pedagogy in Turbulent Times

On October 2, 2020, in collaboration with the School of Social Work, CRTLE hosted this teaching seminar on how traumatic stress impacts student learning and how best we can mitigate it.

To be able to help students, we need to first be able to recognize trauma in ourselves. In this seminar, we will consider the neuroscience of traumatic stress and its impact on student learning. Specifically, we will address the impact of the ongoing pandemic and the long-ignored calls for racial justice on our sense of self and overall well-being. What lessons can we learn from neuroscience to help us better negotiate the pain and anxiety in ourselves and our students? How can we leverage the healing power of the community to help us move forward and help ourselves and our students continue to learn and thrive?
