    AT Program & Inclusive Pedagogy Workshop Series: Difficult Discussions

    Instructors are often hesitant to introduce or unsure how to handle topics like racism, sexism, classism, and heterosexism in the classroom. Additionally, being blindsided by a student's insensitivity is perhaps a universal and universally difficult classroom experience. These situations pose challenges to instructors for how to handle both the issues and the passionate exchanges that may result. This interactive workshop offers two approaches to help. First, we discuss how to create a classroom culture conducive to exploring difficult discussions in a constructive manner. Second, we provide participants a space to share ideas and hear tips about what to do when classroom discussions take an unexpected turn.

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.
