Trauma-Informed Instruction

Many adult learners have had traumatic experiences that impact their ability to learn. Escaping a war-torn country, surviving abuse, living in poverty, dealing with the daily circumstances of systemic racism, and living through this COVID-19 pandemic are just some examples. This two-hour, online workshop, hosted by the ELA, Math, and ESOL C&I PD Centers, focuses on the effects of trauma on the brain, the impact of trauma on learning, and why an understanding of trauma matters to adult educators. We will also discuss how to notice when a student is experiencing any kind of trauma while teaching remotely, and ways to deal with this as a teacher during remote instruction. (Please note that this is a repeat of the highly successful PD of the same name from last fall.)
