Teaching the Whole Student Series: Trauma-Informed Pedagogy

April 2 @ 12:30 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Our own surveys of Baruch students and research more broadly indicate that trauma and other mental health difficulties can significantly affect student learning, their behavior in the classroom, and their relationships with staff, faculty and peers. Trauma-informed educational design can help students take in and retain information, create strong connections with others, and succeed academically. In this workshop we’ll discuss what trauma-informed pedagogy can offer you and your students, providing ideas for classroom strategies and course design.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Baruch Counseling Center as part of the Trauma-Informed Baruch Initiative

Speakers: Kathryn Ford, MPH, LCSW, Program Manager, Trauma-Informed Baruch Initiative & Teresa Hurst, Ph.D., Director, Counseling Center

Facilitators: Lisa Blankenship, Interim CTL Director/Dept of English and Katherine Tsan, Digital Pedagogy Manager, CTL
