Trauma-Informed Teaching Practices Study Circle

April 19 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT Free

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: FRI. 2/23/24

To do our work well, educators need to be aware of students’ possible experiences stemming from trauma in a myriad of forms, as well as implications for teaching and learning. In this study circle, a lens of trauma-informed instruction is used to deepen our best practices in working with adult learners in ways that are inclusive and culturally responsive. In this professional learning activity, emphasis is on reading, reflection, and discussion.

Objectives:
– Articulate a working definition of trauma that includes personal, systemic, historical, and other experiences.
– Identify ways that such trauma can impact learning for adult basic education students.
–  Implement trauma-informed practices in order to better serve adult learners.
– Connect with fellow ABE practitioners and create a supportive environment that fosters well-being for ourselves, our students, and our workplaces.

Facilitated by: Andrea Echelberger
