MAKING THE CLASSROOM A SAFER SPACE FOR DIVERSITY TOPICS AND DIFFICULT DIALOGUES
In the wake of the changing political and social climate more faculty and teaching staff may want to include or may need to respond to topics on race, ethnicity, social justice, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, etc. Faculty and other instructors may have difficulty integrating such topics in their classroom or may not know how to facilitate a difficult topic of discussion when it occurs. What can an instructor do?
Join us for an interactive, discussion-based workshop on what can be done and how to better facilitate these dialogues. As a group we will share experiences, strategies and challenges. This workshop is a follow-up from the Kathy Obear webinar, Move Beyond Civility: How to Facilitate Difficult Dialogues in the Classroom that was sponsored by the Division for Equity and Inclusion last semester.
This workshop is open to graduate students, faculty, and anyone interested in teaching.
