Trauma can impact students’ ability to learn in the classroom but can also impact instructors’ well-being and effectiveness in the teaching and learning environment. Researchers have especially noted that the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected faculty and students from underrepresented backgrounds in higher education. The Trauma-Informed Pedagogy workshop is catered to faculty and graduate students who are interested in learning about how to support students who have experienced significant trauma in their lives, while also taking care of oneself. In this workshop, participants will learn the foundations of an Equity-Centered Trauma-Informed Pedagogical Framework and engage in collaborative conversations about opportunities and challenges of applying these strategies to their own classroom practices.
