At this Office Hours session we will talk about trauma-informed pedagogy. Together we’ll explore how trauma responses may affect learning, how we can identify opportunities for trauma-informed practices in teaching, and how we can explain connections between OER, equity and trauma-informed practices in higher education. What do educators, staff, and students have to share? Join us as we talk about frameworks, experiences, and trauma-informed teaching and learning.
