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 workshop will provide the opportunity for faculty participants to develop strategies for fostering critical thinking, open-mindedness, and civil discourse in the classroom. Faculty participants will engage with strategies for laying the groundwork necessary for having challenging conversations, learn approaches for responding to unexpectedly “hot moments,” and practice applying the strategies we discuss to common instructional situations.
Facilitator: Dr. Meg Gregory, Assistant Director, Academic Services, The Teaching Center
Registration will open two weeks prior to the workshop’s start date. For questions about the workshop, please contact Dr. Megan Gregory, Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
