Respond to Challenging Moments and Foster Meaningful Dialogue
Many instructors may be concerned about how to respond to the current social/political climate. Whether this is your first time participating or you would like a refresher in how to respond, in this workshop we will discuss strategies that will help you intervene in harmful or toxic conversations in your classrooms and engage your students in dialogue that fosters an understanding of multiple perspectives. You’ll get a chance to practice with colleagues and identify campus resources to draw upon. Illinois State is committed to ensuring that all students can learn in an environment that is safe, inclusive, and includes the expectation that students act in a mutually respectful manner towards each other. Registration is required.
