Abstract:

With a focus on the scholarship of teaching and learning in the arts and humanities, the panelists (the 2020-21 RCAH Fellows) will explore the cultivation of community in the classroom. They will present the results from their ongoing original research projects on trauma-informed pedagogy, creating safe classroom spaces and cultures of care in the classroom, and generating students’ sense of belonging in both in-person and virtual learning environments. Furthermore, panelists will address the challenges of conducting research on teaching and learning in a pandemic, the value of interdisciplinarity in such research, and considerations for bringing the research back into the classroom to enhance student learning.
