    Inclusive Pedagogy Series & New Faculty Welcome Series: Facilitating Difficult Discussions

    A critical component of engaging difference and diversity in our classrooms is facilitating constructive and in-depth dialogue—giving students experience grappling with multiple perspectives different from and in tension with their own. This workshop will focus on how to create a classroom atmosphere conducive to fruitful discussion on sensitive topics so that the intense and difficult dialogues that inevitably arise can remain constructive. In particular, we will explore effective tools and strategies for such occasions and discuss the educational value of managed conflict in the classroom.

    HFSC: Herman Room

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.
