Bias & Diversity Training

This new program for faculty provides a training that is designed to help raise awareness of bias and diversity challenges in education, and provide tips and strategies that educators can use to improve their teaching or the administration of their schools.  At present, this program is being evaluated and thus schools may opt to participate as part of the pilot program. There is a student curriculum that accompanies this training.

The coronavirus pandemic has posed a significant threat to children’s mental health, as they’ve endured approximately a year with social isolation, high screen use, and parental anxiety and stress.  This faculty training reviews the research we have on the pandemic and its impact on children, including research conducted here at MARC, and practical steps and that schools and educators can take to promote children’s mental health and to maximize their recovery post-pandemic.

Faculty Advisory Training

Advisory can be a tricky program to implement. Educators may resist, students may not participate, and the purpose of Advisory can become vague and poorly defined. This training helps educators understand the purpose of Advisory (not therapy!), how to frame it for students, and the research that clearly indicates what elements help Advisory succeed and what approaches are much less successful.
