Strategies for Inclusive Teaching: Facilitating Challenging Conversations
Thursday, February 19th, 2015
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
This workshop has been rescheduled from its original date. Registration is still open.
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.
Presenters: Beth Fisher, Ph.D., Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center and Michelle Repice, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
This workshop is part of the Pedagogies in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop Series, co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Senate.
Participation in this workshop series partially satisfies the advanced-level training requirement for the Teaching Citation program and the Preparation in Pedagogy (PiP) program.
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.
