Ukrainian Educators and Students Speak on Trauma Informed Teaching and Learning

Friday, March 22, from 10-11:15 a.m.

Dr. Lyudmila Kruhlenko, Dr. Oksana Tashkinova, Dr. Lyudmyla Ponomariova, and student leader Taisia Markitan who will talk about their higher education experiences amidst the war in Ukraine to LEAP Indiana colleagues (which includes ISU!).

Per Dr. Kruhlenko: “From the first days of a full-scale war, among the targets of Russian shelling were objects of educational infrastructure… Therefore, not only the students, but also the educational and teaching staff changed their place of residence partially, and in some universities completely. Some students and teachers are still in the occupied territories or simply on the front line. All this led to an increase in traumatic events and stress on the mental health of participants in educational processes in Ukraine. Pryazovskyi State Technical University originally located in Mariupol but displaced to the official territory of Ukraine in the Dnipro city is an example of how to support students and teachers, particularly those facing trauma, stress, and difficult situations due to the war in Ukraine…Presenting our experience of specifically designed resources and trainings to help develop skills for overcoming such problems.”

All are welcome to join this vital discussion at 10:00 a.m. this Friday, March 22 via Zoom:
