This course has been developed with Cia Verschelden from the American Association of Colleges and Universities, USA, and it includes short videos, activities, and discussion prompts. It is part of a series on Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources. When completed you will:
- Learn about a major public health study in the United States that focused on Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) and their effects on long-term health and well-being.
- Appreciate that many of our students (and ourselves and our colleagues) may have hidden illnesses and other struggles as a result of ACEs.
- Understand that there are things we can do in our classrooms to help our students recover some of the bandwidth they lose to the on-going negative effects of ACEs.
