Trauma-Informed Teaching: The Challenges of Learning Right Now and How Our Teaching can Respond

Facilitator: This event is sponsored by the Penn First Plus Program
Convener: Dr. Mays Imad, Professor of Genetics, Biotechnology and Bioethics at Pima Community College

In our current time, many of our students are contending with COVID-19, police brutality, racism, social, political and economic instability, uncertainty, and other trauma-inducing experiences. In the midst of this, how can we teach in ways that are sensitive to students’ experiences of these realities? In this presentation, neuroscientist Mays Imad, who writes and consults nationally on trauma-informed teaching, will consider the impact of traumatic experiences on the brain and how our students’ learning, and their mental and emotional health, are affected. This talk will then focus on strategies that can be used to mitigate this impact and improve educational outcomes.

This event will be recorded. CETLI and Penn First Plus are co-sponsoring this event.
