About this Event
A faculty only session with Dr. Amer F. Ahmed. Instructors often encounter a myriad of challenging issues and circumstances that emerge in our classrooms. These issues may include divergent expectations, inappropriate comments, difficult and controversial topics, and/or a lack of shared identities and background with students. This interactive session will give participants opportunities to reflect, engage and discuss how to create a learning and student-centered environment, set a context that can effectively address challenging classroom dynamics, and better embrace the learning opportunities that emerge from difficult moments. The goals of this workshop are to: enhance participants’ awareness of the complexities of challenging classroom dynamics, explore teaching practices that foster an inclusive and equitable learning environment, and discuss strategies for attending to challenging classroom dynamics and facilitating difficult class discussions.
