Teaching in Anxious Times

Most instructors have, at some point, had a student stop attending class, request extensions for health or mental health reasons, or recede from engagement in a course following a campus or national incident. Given current events in the world and our hybrid learning environment, it can be more challenging than ever to navigate these health and personal issues as they arise. This roundtable will help instructors navigate these difficult moments with students and become familiar with the resources Brown provides to support both you and them. This session will be most relevant for instructors of record. Roundtable facilitators include Carol Cohen (The College), Anja Lee (The College), and Timothy Shiner (Campus Life).
