Are you missing your students and concerned about how this lack of human connection might affect those who are the most vulnerable? Join us for this encore of the CVC-OEI/@ONE Humanizing Challenge, taking place January 20-22! You will discover helpful trauma-informed strategies that will help you cultivate a learning environment in which your students feel seen, valued and safe. The three-day Humanizing Challenge will engage you in inquiry about your unconscious biases and how they influence your online teaching. Using an asset-based mindset, you will see and improve barriers that prevent many of your students from achieving their full potential. By participating, you will gain knowledge of online teaching practices that support neuroscience and culturally responsive pedagogy and be more prepared to mitigate the effects of trauma on your students.

To participate in this three-day event, we invite you to register for free for the one-hour live sessions on days one, two, and three; plan to spend time each day completing the self-directed activities; and share your amazing work with your peers!
