Classroom Conversations: What do we do when opinions collide?
Matthew Hickey, Professor, Department of Health and Exercise Science
Difficult topics, differences of opinion, disagreements, and misunderstandings are all potential parts of any group dynamic. In the context of teaching, opinions may collide, and challenging issues arise by design (in pursuit of the aims of the course in question, and planned by the instructor), but we must also be prepared for difficult conversations to emerge spontaneously. Being prepared as instructors (both for the planned “difficult conversations” and the surprises) is a critical aspect to effective teaching. This session will share some thoughts/observations on how to navigate both the planned and spontaneous moments that involve challenging conversations.
