College of Charleston faculty. Happy 2021! We at TLT are in full preparation mode for TLTCon, which will happen virtually May 12th and 13th. And we are super excited about this year’s keynote, Dr. Sarah Rose Cavanagh, who will be speaking to us about “the contribution of emotions and emotion regulation to quality of life.”
Cavanagh is a psychologist, professor, and Associate Director of the D’Amour Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College. We believe that this theme and the science of emotional intelligence has the potential to inspire our various schools to think and reflect on the impact of COVID-19; how we work together; how we support fellow colleagues and students; and how we communicate. Professor Cavanagh will be kickstarting a conference that we hope will provide tools of emotional survival in a time where email is an emergency and instruction is disembodied. It’s our hope that the conference will enable us to regain balance and find our footing through imagination and a return to physical and mental presence.
I recently had the chance to speak with Sarah about the science of emotion, its measurability, and the potential a robust understanding of emotional engagement has as a pedagogical tool in the classroom. I hope this conversation inspires you to attend TLTCon 2021.
