MANAGING CONFLICT AND CONTROVERSY IN THE CLASSROOM
Amy Wilkins, Associate Professor of Sociology
Classroom conversations may (intentionally or unintentionally) evoke topics that are difficult for both faculty and students to discuss. We will discuss various classroom techniques aimed at encouraging and managing difficult classroom conversations without stifling them. How do you get students to talk about difficult topics? How do you create and maintain a classroom space that is safe for all students? What do you do if a student is too dominant in a class discussion?
No registration required.
