Upcoming Workshops & Events



Designing a Course with Contention in Mind with Faculty Fellow Monica Merrill 

Thursday, December 2nd 3-4pm Kilcawley Room 2069 Esterly Room

Virtual & in-person attendance available RSVP

In this workshop, we will review the four typical reactions that students have to difficult/contentious topics (paralysis, paralysis by proxy, rage, and resistance). After we identify and explain the four reactions, we will discuss what examples of this participants have seen in their classroom and what ‘triggers’ they see in the course structure. Lastly, we will discuss ways we can proactively manage these reactions by how we structure our courses.  

Participants will be asked to choose one course they teach and brainstorm ways that they can be proactive about these reactions and what they can do to lessen them.
