Join the Department of Social Sciences for the Part II of this event, which will discuss strategies and practices in and outside the classroom to create learning environments in which students can recover the cognitive capacity they need to be successful in college. The virtual event will take place on February 4 from 12:40-1:40 p.m.
Recognizing that students in certain minoritized groups are no different than their peers in terms of cognitive capacity, there are strategies and practices in and outside the classroom that we — students and instructors — can use to create learning environments in which students can recover the cognitive capacity they need to be successful in college.
This event is part two in a two-part series led by Cia Verschelden, M.S.W., Ed.D. Verschelden has recently left Malcolm X College as Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs. Formerly, she was the Executive Director of Institutional Assessment at University of Central Oklahoma, where she taught in sociology and the first-year program, and Vice President of Highland Community College in Kansas. At Kansas State University, where she was on the faculty for 21 years, she taught social welfare and social policy, women’s studies, and nonviolence studies. Cia has a B.S. in psychology from Kansas State University, an M.S.W. from The University of Connecticut, and an Ed.D. from Harvard University. Her book, Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources Lost to Poverty, Racism, and Social Marginalization, was published in 2017. Her new book, Bandwidth Recovery for Schools: Helping Pre-K-12 Students Regain Cognitive Resources Lost to Poverty, Trauma, Racism and Social Marginalization, came out in September 2020.
