    Difficult Discussions: Teaching in Contentious Times

    The current cultural/political moment, with all its tension and complication, is likely to play out not just in the outside world but in our classrooms as well. Many of us feel a strong desire to engage with issues, but are not always sure how to do so in a productive and supportive way. Sensitive topics may well bubble up even if we don’t broach them intentionally. As people committed to the work of creating spaces for students to learn, grow, and push their own boundaries, how do we enable and support the important discussions of the moment, even when they may be difficult and we may be uncertain? This workshop will focus on effective tools and strategies for such occasions and discuss the educational value of managed conflict in the classroom.

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.
