Session three: WHAT DOES AN EMOTIONALLY ATTUNED CLASSROOM LOOK LIKE?
In the final seminar of this 3-part series, we will explore what an emotionally attuned classroom might look like in the University of 21st century. This is an especially important question in view of efforts to increase equality and diversity on campus, and while rates of young people's mental health struggles continue to climb shockingly. Student emotional self-regulation is frequently conceived as being most appropriately addressed through support systems outside the classroom, yet scientific discoveries concerning emotional stress make this a vacuous distinction. The seminar aims to bring together staff and students so that, in our discussion, we can together explore ideas about how to create a more emotionally attuned classroom -- one where, in Dr Suzanne Zeedyk's terminology, Sabre Tooth Tigers aren't running riot. In conjunction with Café Scientifique.
