January 24, 2020 | Winston's 30th Annual Learning Symposium
San Antonio, TX (Thursday, November 7, 2019) – On Friday, January 24, 2020 The Winston School San Antonio is hosting its 30th Annual Learning Symposium, the region’s leading event of its kind, presenting the latest information and ideas on childhood learning, development and education. This year’s theme is Fostering Resilient Learners: How can we empower our youth to be their best amid a world of stress and trauma?
As parents, teachers, and other adults who touch the lives of children and adolescents, it is our responsibility to build on the potential we see and to help mitigate the negative effects of the various traumatic experiences our youth face.
Coincidentally, this week the CDC published a report highlighting how childhood trauma causes serious health repercussions throughout life, and is a public health issue that calls for concerned prevention efforts. See link below!
In this interactive and relevant keynote lecture, author Kristin Souers will address how we can help children develop into resilient young adults. Beginning with exploring the impact of stress on the brain and then turning the lens toward self-awareness, participants will leave this session with the tools they need to provide effective support.
Located in San Antonio, Texas, the Winston Annual Learning Symposium attracts over 400 educators, parents, physicians and other community specialists who gather to hear informative presentations from leaders in their respective fields. Nine additional breakout sessions will cover:
- Outdoor Education
- Instructional Technology
- Social-Emotional Learning,
- Mindfulness for Educators/Self Care for Teachers
- Sensory Integration
There is also a 2-hour Ethics Panel. CEU credits are available for this event.
Winston’s Headmaster, Dr. Charles J. Karulak Ed.D. said, “Our annual symposium provides the community with cutting-edge research and information about the best practices for educating children—it helps extend Winston’s reach by providing information to parents, teachers and healthcare professionals from across the state.”
