    Inclusive Pedagogy Series: Trigger Warnings: Beyond the Buzz

    US campuses are buzzing over “trigger warnings," and the way these relate to student needs and diversity, academic freedom, and the values of higher education. Recognizing both the polemics and complexities involved in these issues, this workshop focuses specifically on student learning. Given the diversity of our classrooms and the certainty that some of our students are dealing with trauma, how can we best develop our classroom culture and engage with potentially difficult course materials in ways that consider students’ well-being in order to maximize students’ ability to grapple with and digest the material, and ultimately learn?

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.
