Start Time:

Room:

Description:
Have you witnessed an increase of incivility in your classroom? If so, you are not alone. Because of national discourse regarding safety on college campuses, faculty and staff seem more conscious of disruptive, threatening, and concerning behaviors. Examples include: use of email, list-serves, or Facebook to verbally attack or slander classmates as well as bullying through the internet or intentional isolation of colleagues on team projects. Reactions to students’ differences can lead to class conflict, impacting a student’s ability to learn and an instructor’s ability to teach. All participants will leave this session with strategies to address difficult situations and promote inclusivity.
Goals and Target Audience:
The primary goal is to learn strategies on managing classroom disruptiveness.
