Techniques for Building Authentic Group Connections

Do you want your classes to feel like a community? Authentic connection is an essential foundation for community development, yet it can be challenging for people of varied backgrounds and identities to come together. This workshop presents an activity that demonstrates how to develop genuine camaraderie amongst members of a group. Participants will engage in the "Crest Activity” to personally understand the value and impact of this ultimate ice breaker.

Trauma-Sensitive Pedagogies (INCLUSIVE)

This workshop examines how past and present traumas impact student learning experiences and faculty-student relationships. Every semester, students ask for help navigating stressors that fall largely outside of pedagogical training. Trauma is compounded during COVID-19. Consider BLM protests and the 2020 presidential election, or precarious housing situations and financial instability. How have you addressed these issues with your students? Have you considered how their previous life experiences may impact their present ability to cope? By drawing on the traumas students experience at CSUF, we discuss the responsibilities faculty and staff have to provide emotional support and psychological resources

The Most Marginalized: Nature

The Fourth National Climate Assessment gives a grim look at the relationship between humans and the environment the last 100 years. I argue that anthropocentric society’s use of language others nature and perpetuates the systemic problem of ecological destruction. Changing our language about nature can start to diminish the marginalization of nature.

The Feel of a Safe-Space (INCLUSIVE)

The noise and monotony of daily routine can leave us feeling tired and uninspired, yet the classroom is meant to be a place of growth and inspiration. Humiliations, frustrations, and traumas of our past often compound exhaustion and feelings of mistrust. To combat these familiar feelings, students need safe spaces: a place that inspires, rejuvenates, acknowledges the personhood and identities of each student. This workshop explores how faculty can cultivate and facilitate safe-spaces and the value for doing so.
