Trauma takes many forms. It impacts the way individuals engage in the classroom experience and within the larger community. When utilizing a trauma informed pedagogy faculty recognize trauma is present within learning communities, are mindful of trauma responses, and are able to integrate tools that aid in teaching and healing. Through trauma informed practices, faculty can build on the resiliency of our students and create spaces that will maximize all students’ potential. The use of trauma informed pedagogy can facilitate growth and allow students to thrive as changemakers.

Learning Outcomes:

Participants will be able to:

  • define trauma and describe its prevalence. 
  • identify the impacts of trauma on learning and behavior.
  • apply at least three trauma informed strategies in curriculum development, including how to leverage resilience and avoid re-traumatization.
  • articulate the importance of self-care as a faculty member.

Facilitated by: Dr. Melissa Halter, Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs for Student Wellness
