SUBJECT: Managing Disruptive Students in the Classroom
LEAP is pleased to present Al Wengerd and Will Dewese from the Office of
Student Conduct to present on this topic and offer some clarity and perhaps
a place to turn for help with the issue of difficult student behavior.
The climate of higher education has changed over the past few decades, and
faculty are now faced with more serious issues of classroom behavior that were
previously of little concern. At times faculty fail to address the disruptive
behavior of students because they may: (1) be unsure how to handle the
situation, (2) fear legal or physical retaliation from the student, (3)
conclude that reporting the disruptive behavior will cause emotional pain to an
already fragile or unstable person and/or (4) fear that confronting student
misconduct may result in negative student evaluation of the course.
When does a classroom disruption rise to the level of a violation of the
university's Student Conduct Code? How do we manage civility and dialogue in
the classroom and honor first amendment rights? Have you struggled with student
"entitlement" and their attachment to technology? What resources are on campus
to help address this challenging issue?
What specifically do you need by way of support or consultation from your
Office of Student Conduct? What are effective intervention strategies that have
worked in addressing disruptive students? Join Al Wengerd and Will Dewese
from the Office of Student Conduct in a presentation and discussion of this
Thursday April 14, 11:30-12:30PM, Regent 302 (depending on number of participants)
ALL faculty are welcome to attend.
