ACT to Sustain Learning Through Current Events
Collectively witnessed or experienced events, such as acts of terrorism, global pandemics, divisive national elections, natural disasters, or campus-wide controversies, can impact student learning and well-being. We encourage instructors to ACT to acknowledge the potential impact on students and plan to navigate a period of possible uncertainty.
The Associated Students of Stanford University (ASSU) echoes the recommendation that instructors acknowledge and plan for events impacting student learning and well-being.
The ACT to Sustain Learning Through Current Events resource provides a range of instructional practices for supporting your students and their course learning through potentially disruptive current events, which you can adapt to your courses.
