This is a past event.

Taper Hall (THH)
3501 Trousdale Parkway, Los Angeles, CA 90089

Hosted by the Center for Excellence in Teaching, Drs. Robert Sweeney and Katherine Guevara

This session employs an online resource consisting of 5 video modules. The session focuses on handling discussions can easily veer off course, sometimes crossing the line from being appropriately uncomfortable (which can enhance growth) to unproductive or damaging. It is an active workshop that facilitates review, and possibly revision, of participants’ existing class discussion practices through the lens of diversity and inclusion. Participants will engage in pre-, during-, and post-viewing activities using portions of the series. By the end of this session, participants will be able to identify at least one discussion topic in their field that may upset students during a discussion. Also, they will be able to apply steps to disarm upset students in given scenarios. While this session is intended for faculty, staff and students who plan on teaching are welcome.
