Show Notes

As we have discussed in previous episodes, the start of the 2021-2022 school year is hardly a return to “normal.”  Recently highlighted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has taken a trauma-informed approach to crafting the start to this new academic year - an approach that honors the last year of pandemic learning and life.  Dr. Scott Gonert, Dr. Adam Jussel, and Dr. James Topitzes discuss what they’ve learned about their own community’s COVID experiences and how their research has informed their reopening plans for students, staff, and faculty. This promises to be a critical conversation you won’t want to miss!
