Caring for Yourself as an Instructor: Applying Rest in the Classroom

February 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

This workshop is designed to cultivate a safe and brave space for individuals with minoritized identities by covering topics related to self-care, rest, navigating the politics of higher education, academic trauma, microaggressions and healing. Working off of Tricia Hersey’s (2022) Rest is Resistance framework, we will explore Hersey’s “Rest” component to identify tools for self-care, rest and protection as an instructor existing and working in academic spaces. By the end of this workshop, participants will be prepared to:

  • Apply the Rest is Resistance framework to self-care and rest practices in and out of the classroom
  • Recognize the importance of cultivating healthy well-being for personal and professional success
  • Create a self-care plan for how they intend on investing in their well-being both personally and professionally. Participants are encouraged to continue and commit to this plan outside of the workshop
