Teachers play an essential role in a possible “return to normalcy” and transition to in-person learning. They are expected to cultivate a safe learning environment, address lost instructional time, and support the social and emotional needs of students, many of whom experienced the pandemic as trauma. What is the role of teachers in the recovery process? How can they adapt their curriculum and pedagogy to advance learning and foster healing? How can teachers prepare themselves and their students for future crises and uncertainties? And, finally, how can teachers do all this while maintaining their own mental health and well-being? In this webinar, participants will hear teachers’ experiences of recovery and preparedness in other emergencies and consider how to apply these lessons today.
