Location: 305 Graduate Student Center
Summary: In this workshop, we will explore intersections of stress, mental illness, and learning in the university classroom. We will discuss how stress impacts learning, differences and overlaps between healthy, normal stress, distress, and mental illness, and possible signs that indicate that a student is struggling in the classroom. Workshop attendees will leave with strategies for helping students navigate intense periods of stress, information on how to connect students to resources on campus (like Counseling and Psychological Services), and ideas for promoting a culture of wellness in the classroom. Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate. Also counts as a follow-up workshop for SAS participants in TA Training.
