Reparative Humanism in Higher Education - Workshop with Mays Imad

Reparative Humanism in Higher Education - Workshop with Mays Imad In-Person / Online

About the Event:

This interactive workshop will examine the cyclical nature of trauma and reflect on the things that trauma takes us away from – including our humanity – and the things healing from trauma requires that we should not shy away from – in order to re-embrace our human wholeness. Participants will be invited to rethink higher education’s role in shaping the future. Not merely our intellectual or economic future, but also our moral and spiritual future.

The event is co-sponsored by Countway Library and the HMS Curriculum Fellows Program.

About the Speaker:

Mays Imad is an assistant professor of biology and equity pedagogy at Connecticut College. Prior to that, she founded the teaching and learning center at Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona. A Gardner Institute Fellow, an AAC&U Senior Fellow, and a Mind & Life Institute Fellow, Imad’s research focuses on biofeedback, stress, self-regulation, advocacy, and classroom community, and how these impact student learning and success. A nationally-recognized expert on trauma-informed teaching and learning, Imad is interested in understanding the social determinants of wellbeing and their effects on students’ ability to learn and thrive. She works with faculty across disciplines and institutions to promote inclusive, equitable, and contextual education–all rooted in the latest research on the neurobiology of learning.
