Fall 2023 Schedule

Led by Jennifer Seagraves, Wiggins Memorial Library

Trauma-Informed Teaching and Learning most simply means bringing an awareness and understanding to the lives of our students who have experienced trauma, violence, and victimization. It encourages thought on how we can bring awareness and accommodations into our institutional policies and practices, and keep the experiences of our trauma survivors in mind. Through research, personal experience, and with the added input of mental health professionals, Jennifer will bring awareness to this pedagogy, share resources, and open a conversation with faculty and staff on how to incorporate trauma-informed pedagogy approaches in higher education.

Technology usage in the classroom has skyrocketed in the last 10 to 15 years, and Covid-19 has taught us that technology integration is essential. This workshop will provide a list of applications and techniques to engage students through lesson delivery effectively. Effective educators understand the benefits of integrating technology in the classroom and finding new ways to make lessons meaningful.

This session will address tools and resources that will help faculty empower our students to develop their agency and advocacy inside and outside the classroom. Participants will read The Illusion of a Frictionless Existence to reflect on the "generation of fragility" and "risk-averse students," discuss pedagogical trends in the current generation of college students, and if these trends reflect our student population. Faculty will connect these trends and skill-building concepts to the university’s well-being commitments.

Lead a Workshop

Leading a workshop is a fantastic opportunity to share your interests, passions, and research with your fellow faculty and staff members. Sharing of ideas and information facilitates collaboration and learning among our community and can empower our faculty with new skills.

Please reach out to Jennifer Seagraves, Instructional Pedagogy and Curriculum Materials Librarian, to discuss your workshop topic and goals, and we will help with the rest.

Please note that we strive to have workshops that are open and inclusive to all faculty regardless of subject area, faculty status, or department.
