UPCOMING EVENTS

Difficult Discussions
Tuesday, October 9, 2018, 10:00 AM to 11:50 AM
HFSC Social Room | RSVP here

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. Offered in partnership with the Apprenticeship in Teaching program.

VET Ally Program for Faculty: How to Support Military-Connected Students
Tuesday, November 6, 2018, 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
HFSC Herman Room | RSVP here

This workshop is designed to introduce faculty to the strengths, challenges, and realities America's military service members and families face here, and to help faculty develop the resources and skills to support these students. By becoming a VET Ally, faculty can help create an open environment for military-connected students and contribute to their success as they reintegrate into academic and civilian society. Offered in partnership with the Georgetown Veterans Office.
