Teachers’ Lounge: Making the best of difficult discussion

March 22, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Butler Library Room 212

Continuing the exploration of inclusive teaching techniques and challenges at CTL, Spring 2017 Teachers Lounges consider approaches to class discussion that genuinely engage a diverse range of students. In this session we will consider times from our own experiences when class conversation has turned painful or offensive, and look at situations described in the Start Talking and Stop Talking handbooks in the Ford Foundation Difficult Dialogues in Higher Education series.
Any current or future instructor at Columbia is welcome to join. Participants are welcome to drop by for individual sessions or the whole series. There is no registration for Teachers’ Lounge — if you are interested in the topic and available, just drop by! Pizza is available for all participants.
