    Trauma-Informed Pedagogy

    Jean Amaral (BMCC) will lead an interactive workshop focused on the principles and practices of Trauma-Informed Pedagogy, an approach that can help us better support students on their educational journey. For those who would like to attend the workshop, we ask that you register for one of the two sessions and also that you prepare (just a little bit!), by consulting the materials at the top of OTE Trauma-Informed Pedagogy Workshop Resources.

    Open Pedagogy: Teaching and Learning Empowered is a two-part workshop led by Brooklyn College faculty (Wed, July 28 & Wed, Aug 4).

    This two-part workshop, led by Brooklyn College faculty, will focus on open pedagogy, which enacts the belief that students can and should be not only consumers of knowledge but also producers of it.

    The Brooklyn College Covid-19 Archive@ A Journal of the Plague Year and the Brooklyn College Listening Project will be featured as examples of students as producers of public scholarship.

    Innovative open pedagogy projects utilizing, Story Maps, and the Manifold platform will be presented. All of these digital tools are freely available to all CUNY students and faculty.

    In the first session (Wednesday, July 28, 2021) participants will discuss how they can create an open pedagogy assignment for their course and learn to use and install, create a basic Story Map, and learn how their students can use Manifold for their research project.

    The second session (Wednesday, August 4) will feature three Brooklyn College faculty who have created and developed open educational resources and utilized OER to adopt either an open pedagogy approach, Team Based Learning or a Flipped Classroom practice.

    • See details and register HERE.

    Participants are welcome to join both or one of the sessions. If you have any questions, email
