We are excited to announce that our keynote presenter for 2020, Dr. Mays Imad, has agreed to remain on next year’s program, as have several of our invited workshop facilitators. In addition, Dr. Imad has graciously offered to host a free webinar on trauma-sensitive teaching and learning for the Summit community. Over 5,000 people have already participated in her thoughtful and timely webinars on caring for students in times of crisis. We hope you’ll join us for this event.
This workshop will interrogate what it means to teach for purpose, empowerment, and liberation. How do we leverage the neuroscience of now to help our students learn and thrive in turbulent times? We will also examine the theoretical framework and practical implications of trauma-informed pedagogy and social emotional learning.
Facilitator: Mays Imad is a neuroscientist and the founding coordinator of the teaching and learning center at Pima Community College where she studies stress and emotions and their effect on students’ learning.
Date: August 28, 2020
Time: 2:30 - 4:00pm EST
Participants will be emailed information for attending the webinar after submitting their registration.
