High Country Conference Center & Zoom Webinar
Buffet breakfast will be provided beginning at 7:30 for the in-person guests.
Event Description Accordion Closed
The cognitive resources of many of our students have been and are being diminished by the negative effects of persistent economic insecurity, discrimination and hostility against non-majority groups based on race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity, and other aspects of difference, and by uncertainty related to the pandemic and social unrest. We can implement strategies and interventions that show promise in helping students regain the cognitive resources they need to learn and thrive at NAU.
IDr. Verschelden will provide an interactive workshop on understanding bandwidth and provide strategies and interventions you can implement in the classroom to support students.
For those joining us in-person, plan to arrive early for breakfast and socializing with colleagues. The program will begin promptly at 8:00 am.
