Facilitating, Managing, and Responding to Difficult Dialogues-Graduate Workshop
502 King Science and Engineering Library
Wednesday, March 20, 2019 - 4:00pm
Event concludes at 5:15.
Conflict in the classroom can suppress dialogue and engagement. This is especially true when tensions arise from issues of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and other encounters with privilege and oppression. Discomfort can be compounded if instructors feel unprepared to facilitate constructive conversations due to lack of perceived expertise, fear of poor evaluations, or simply from being caught off guard. This workshop prepares instructors to courageously manage and hold space for multiple or differing perspectives in the classroom. Participants will learn strategies for stimulating productive discussion while maintaining an inclusive learning environment.
This workshop is part of the Grad+ Pedagogy Track, a workshop series for graduate students. The theme for the 2018-19 academic year is inclusive teaching.
