Teaching and Traumatic Events

Teaching and Traumatic Events

Friday 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Convention Center – 201 (Street Level)

Current events are pressing conversations about trauma and traumatic events in classrooms across higher education, not just those associated with theology and religion. This pre-meeting workshop invites religion and theology faculty into critically reflective conversations about trauma and traumatic events related to classroom teaching. The workshop will explore such topics as: hot-button issues, teaching methods and strategies for engaging trauma and traumatic events in classroom teaching, and crisis teaching. The workshop will also provide participants with a range of effective teaching resources related to the topic.

We will begin with a buffet lunch at noon and conclude at 5 p.m. Prior to the workshop, participants will read a short essay in advance and be prepared to discuss your teaching context.

Pre-registration is required. 
Space is limited to 40 participants. Send an email to Beth Reffett, reffettb@wabash.edu Registration deadline is October 15.
