Creating Inclusive Learning Environments: Trauma-Informed Teaching
Tuesday, February 22, 20229:30 am – 11:00 am EST/GMT-5
9:30 AM New York l 3:30 PM Vienna
OSUN's CEU-based Open Learning Initiative, or OLIve, and OSUN’s Working Group on Education for Refugees, IDPs, and Host Community Members present a workshop series for all OSUN educators that examines the practices and pedagogies developed for teaching refugees, asylum seekers, and displaced students, asking how such tools can help educators themselves be better teachers and administrators in general.
This session on trauma informed teaching deals with managing academic demands and the personal stories/needs of students. Facilitators will support participants in making a map of the different contexts and kinds of trauma students with a migration background may have experienced including self-positioning; introduce some of the psychological and physiological impacts of trauma; and share methodologies and exercises for creating a supportive course structure and seminar environment organized around trust.
