Students are experiencing increased stress as a result of the pandemic and the social and political unrest in response to recent events; this series is designed to provide faculty with strategies to help students conserve bandwidth so that they can successfully engage in learning under these tense and trying circumstances. Each session (see schedule below or view a PDF version) will provide attendees with a greater awareness of the underlying causes of bandwidth depletion and concrete, multi-disciplinary strategies to increase students’ cognitive and emotional bandwidth.

Bandwidth Recovery Series
