ATTN: This workshop has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled later in March.
While the classroom can be a space for open, respectful discussion of sensitive or controversial topics, facilitating such discussions can be a challenging prospect. This advanced-level workshop for graduate students and postdocs in the humanities, arts, and social sciences will provide the opportunity to develop strategies for fostering critical thinking, open-mindedness, and civil discourse in the classroom.
Participants will gain confidence in
Establishing ground-rules for respectful dialogue and debate in the classroom
Developing facilitation strategies that encourage the class to understand and value diverse perspectives
Effectively managing and responding to intense disagreement or other “hot moments” in the classroom
Registration is required, and seating is limited.
Presenter: Michelle Repice, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by attendance at a specified number of introductory-level TA-Training workshops.
