Join Michael Bugeja, Distinguished Professor (LAS), as he shares his practices and views about trigger warnings. He disputes the conventional wisdom of "avoidance rationale" as teachers who use such warnings typically tackle the difficult topics. He also rebuts methodologies of studies that show trigger warnings are ineffective and provides guidelines that not only respect students' well-being but also result in enhanced teaching practices.

Dr. Bugeja details content of each lecture in his syllabus, has a flexible attendance policy, provides online study guides for sensitive material, and sends email reminders before each class.

Participants from this session will leave with strategies to use trigger warnings that enhance teaching, empathy and awareness.
