    Facilitating Difficult Discussions

    Difficult discussions may be daunting, but they can also be crucially productive moments in a semester—and sweeping such moments aside when they flare up can lead to problems, including students feeling unheard, alienated, and hurt—but you do have to work to make sure these moments are productive.

    Faculty will learn strategies for handling difficult conversations, including how to lay the foundation for productive discussions, naming topics, and providing students with guidance on how to handle them, including possible ground rules for discussion (e.g., focus on ideas, not people; connect comments to course material; etc.). Faculty in attendance will also learn how to deal with the discussions as they happen—whether you plan them or whether they come up unexpectedly.

    Part of the Teaching for Inclusion & Equity (TIE) Series sponsored by GUSOM Office of Diversity & Inclusion, CNDLS, CENTILE, FDC Subcommittee on Faculty Diversity & Inclusion. Lunch will be provided.

    Navigating Gender, Sexuality in Classroom Discussions

    This workshop session will focus specifically on issues of gender and sexuality and discuss terminology in the classroom. We will use real life case studies and small group discussion to explore the dynamics in the field and our role as educators in addressing them. This workshop will discuss disparities present in the LGBTQ+ community and ways to engage with LGBTQ+ patients respectfully and will touch on common challenges health care providers have while treating patients of various genders and sexualities.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
