The @OLCToday Accelerate conference program is posted. I'll be presenting a pre-conference workshop on #HumanizingOL and a discovery session on using scope of practice to support trauma aware teaching.

The pre-conference workshop is an add-on registration. Details here:…

Keep in mind these kinds of ethical violations (& more) were what Andrew Wakefield had been allowed to get away with resulting in two decades of vaccine refusal & disease outbreaks. Yes, @VascularSVS, the is the right thing to do - accessing a database w/out permission is not ok
When people talk of "privilege" it is exactly this. Who bypasses ethical standards typically enforced by an IRB (I am a former IRB chair, as is @DrvanTilburg). There were med students & trainees on the paper being taught/incentivized (named on publication) this. #AcademicTwitter
This is much, much bigger than one paper. This is cultural. The journal has acknowledged and taken definitive action very matter of factly. Why do I make over 100 revisions and other get a pass? Why disparity in #MedEd #education publications? #MedTwitter

I was inspired to do a bit of systems planning this morning to organize my thoughts (anxieties?) about the return to school.
After reading this article (…), I was inspired to do some systems planning (anyone who knows me knows my love of Multitiered Systems of Support/#MTSS).
What if we approached the return to school in a systemic way--that offers a both/and. For example--ALL students are provided with online, virtual instruction that teachers have had time to plan for (unlike the spring)--this is Tier 1.

🎯If each group of 10-ish kids has an adult to help f2f and targeted instruction being delivered by expert teachers online, you MIGHT get the best of both worlds: 1 on 1 attention from a caring adult AND personalized instruction from a pro. #unlockingheroes #edutwitter
A stream of consciousness thread: A couple of things to watch out for: caring well for kids is hard. You would need volunteers/employees willing to take a crash course in #traumainformed childcare.
You've also got to get enough adults to cover all the posts f2f and online in the midst of a teacher shortage.

I figured out what's bothering me about this image...a thread...

Where are the human stories that we'll all bring to the classroom?
Students and the shorts-wearing prof might be labeled with:
1. Lost a parent to COVID
2. Unemployed for 6 months
3. Assaulted at peaceful protest
4. Racial battle fatigue
5. Fighting daily panic attacks
I've been defining pedagogy as "our teaching choices," all of which are operate in a context. Too many of the fall plans ignore that context.

I am seeing a resurgence of interest in educators calling on other educators to stop pushing kids out of class, to do deep reflective work on their own implicit bias, and to implement restorative practice approache to discipline. #ClearTheAir Thread/
While I deeply appreciate the challenges educators are posing to one another, and also agree, that we as educators must call on our peers to do deep reflective work about our own internalized bias and the ways we view student “misbehavior”,
this moment calls on us to approach school safety within a larger context. In short, we need a Yes/And solution to safety, discipline and racial justice in our schools.

I'd like to emphasize this slide in particular.

#antiracist Image
The impacts of current traumas on the work of teaching and learning, which is the work of #highered, will be massive. Massive. I really can't emphasize this enough.

Hey #highered: talking to a reporter today about the impact of trauma on our work. What do we want her to know? What are the most pressing issues? I have some thoughts (shocker), but I'd love to know what's on your minds too.

I'll add that what I most want #highered to know is that trauma is not the sole responsibility of the counseling team. Trauma dramatically impacts both teaching and learning. It is also a pedagogical issue. It's a human issue. It is our shared responsibility across campus.

Your fall plans need to be #traumainformed, whether you are back on campus or online or somewhere in-between.

I want to f/u on this real quick. Sometimes counselors are allowed a seat at the table. Sometimes. Even that falls short. We are institutions of teaching and learning. Trauma dramatically impacts how we teach and learn. You need someone at the table who can speak to that.
I'm hearing from too many staff/faculty that they are raising this question with leaders and being told, "Oh, Janet is handling that." Janet is the college counselor. There's one of her for 5000 students. She is not a pedagogical expert. We've got to do better.

So this is not my hill to die on today, but I do feel like it's worth fleshing out a bit WHY this bugs me and WHY I don't do it. But as one of my best teachers used to say, "What do I know? You decide for yourself."

I've been teaching first-year students, most of them first-generation students (aka #newtrad), for fourteen years. A huge part of my job is normalizing the frustration of the college experience and teaching them to self-advocate.

Many (most?) of my students are intimidated by authority figures. They've been burned in the past. They've been shamed and belittled for asking questions. Many gave up on asking at all. For more on this, read The College Fear Factory by Rebecca Cox.

After getting out of a domestically violent relationship and a fundamentalist, cult-like religion within a few months of each other, I felt a sense of freedom that I had never felt before.
I was under the impression, initially, that leaving these relationships was all that I needed to do in order to embrace a new life. In reality, leaving was obviously important, but only the first step.

Sat next to a woman on a plane who is done with church not because she is lazy or “spiritual but not religious“ but because a trusted pastor abused his power and hurt her and the system protected him while discarding her. It was hard for her hearing that I was a pastor. (1)
I could sense it and named it, which put her at ease slightly, but being #TraumaInformed I asked if she would prefer that I be re-seated or trade with someone else. Even the Directv feed with news was disregulating for her. All she sees is Xns disregarding the powerless. (2)
I checked in every so often. We talked a little. Thankfully she had tools to regulate. But I suspect she spent much of the flight doing the work of taking care of herself, which is sad and tragic. This is reality, folks. She’s not weak, not faking it. It’s not her job... (3)

One of the biggest myths about childhood trauma is that those who are abused grow up to abuse. While we can't ignore that some do struggle to break the cycle of learned violence, survivors are far more likely to be re-victimized than ever harm another.

Most run on compassion.
We need to take more time acknowledging the strength AND warmth of these resilient survivors; the gift they have to see the needs of the world and lend empathic solutions.
Much of the hard, humanitarian work you see around you is led by them - even if you had no idea.

It's survivors of significant adversity, flooded w/ empathy, driven to spare others of the suffering they endured for far too long.
