Faculty workshop | Managing Difficult Moments in the Classroom

Workshop Description

Moments of tension – sudden eruptions of emotion or conflict, as well as problematic classroom dynamics – are an inescapable part of the classroom experience. How can you, as the instructor, use these moments to foster dialogue and learning? In this interactive workshop, we will discuss various strategies for framing and handling such moments, and will work through some case studies in order to practice how to respond in the moment.
