Description

Approaches to Teaching Students with Anxiety

TLAR - TEACHING AND LEARNING ANCIENT RELIGIONS NETWORK ONE-DAY CONFERENCE

September 13, 10am-5pm, Institute of Classical Studies, Senate House, Malet Street, London

Organised by Esther Eidinow and Susan Deacy

This is a one-day event to explore approaches to teaching students with anxiety. This topic has emerged out of our Network discussions as an issue with which academics teaching religion would like help to enable them to support the needs of students at a time when rising numbers of students are living with anxiety and anxiety-based depression. Religion is a topic that can generate concern among students but that can also enhance the learning experience - and as a result supporting tutors is vital.

The meeting will comprise discussion around a number of case studies, presented by colleagues in Classics, or closely related subjects. Our network is focused on teaching and learning about ancient religions, so the teaching of those subjects will be one focus. But the meeting will not be limited to that.

We intend that the event itself should provide a space for shared reflection on the pedagogical issues raised by teaching students with anxiety, and possible approaches to those issues, and that it should also encourage the development of a network across institutions to support and seed ideas for teaching, as well beginning to develop resources for teachers of this potentially sensitive subject that is a key feature of many classical programmes.

Speakers: Jane Draycott (Glasgow), Chrysanthi Gallou (Nottingham), Emma Griffiths (Manchester), Steve Hunt (Cambridge), Gabriele Neher (Nottingham)

Topics to include: supporting students with mental health conditions; temples, classrooms and C-PTSD; supporting autistic students
