Survey on university/school triggers
I am currently working on a paper/journal article on triggers, triggering material and teaching sensitive material. A huge part of this work is using personal examples to examine how university class material and discussions can often be triggering for students and suggest possible ways to avoid this. For this, I’m trying to collect as many personal anecdotes and opinions as possible and that’s where you come in, lovely people! I am looking at various triggers: racism, trans*phobia, homophobia, classism, sexual assault, eating disorders, violence, etc.
If you have ever felt triggered by in-class material or discussions, I would love to know about it. I have a few questions to ask about the experience and about what you think could have been done differently to avoid this happening. I’d rather do the interviews in person, but if you’d prefer to make your contribution anonymous, you can fill out the SurveyMonkey below instead!
All contributions will be made anonymous and gender-neutral! Thank you so much for your help, this will help Education students learn how to better treat sensitive material to keep their students safer. The final paper will also be sent to various faculty and department members in hopes that it will help develop frameworks to make classrooms at McGill safer.
