ACS Summer Virtual Working Group Q&A

August 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

Trauma-Informed Pedagogy: Routes and Resources

Facilitated by Toni Jaudon (jaudon@hendrix.edu), Rachel Newcomb (rnewcomb@rollins.edu), Susanna Weygandt (esweygan@sewanee.edu), Heidi Syler (hsyler@sewanee.edu), Molly Brookfield (mmbrookf@sewanee.edu), and Leslie Zorwick (zorwick@hendrix.edu)

In a recent Chronicle article, Beth McMurtrie describes the “stunning level of student disconnection” instructors are witnessing in their classrooms. For many students, this disconnection is a response to the chronic stress and isolation of the last three pandemic years, or to other traumatic events in their lives.  

Trauma-Informed Pedagogy is a set of practices designed to help students learn amid these stressors. Rather than asking instructors to step in as therapists, trauma-informed pedagogical practices allow students to connect with others and learn course content, under conditions that support their agency, autonomy, and safety. 

The ACS Trauma-Informed Pedagogies Working Group will host a roundtable discussion and Q&A introducing trauma-informed pedagogies on Tuesday, August 9, at 2pm ET / 1pm CT. We will also preview a new repository of resources on the topic.
