Drs. Emma Tsui and Spring Cooper will present on the Public Health Education Now (PHEN) Oral History Project. This project asks students, faculty and staff at CUNY SPH how our lived experiences since 2020 have shaped our vision of what we want public education to be. We’ll discuss the oral history interviews that the team conducted, focusing on experiences of not only the COVID-19 pandemic, but also the increased visibility of racism and other oppressions, and movements for racial justice that are reverberating both in and out of the classroom. The results of this project have asked us to be more intentional about our pedagogy; demanding that we incorporate trauma-informed teaching into our repertoire. This workshop will cover trauma-informed principles, how to apply them, and workshop classroom examples with participants.
