Karen's workshops are interactive and aim to engage learners from the moment they enter the virtual meeting room.
Trauma impacts how we teach, learn, work, and live. This presentation focuses on the pedagogical impacts of trauma in the college classroom. Learners will be able to define trauma and its impacts, and develop strategies to incorporate trauma-awareness into their teaching, regardless of course modality or subject.
Building on Karen's rich background in mind, brain, and education science (a.k.a. brain-based teaching or neuroeducation), this workshop will empower learners to consider how our brains learn best and to integrate those teaching practices into their online classrooms. Humanizing principles, UDL, and video design will be discussed.
This workshop covers how to sustain ourselves and each other. We'll cover basic stress physiology, what self-care is (and isn't), and how we can create a daily practice to support our well-being. Learners will gain skills to apply these strategies in their lives and in classrooms with students.
