Engage in "Challenging Classroom Conversations": Navigating Potentially Polarizing Discussions with Skill and Sensitivity
In today's diverse and complex educational landscape, fostering an inclusive learning environment means embracing a range of perspectives, even when they may seem polarizing. The "Challenging Classroom Conversations" workshop is your guide to effectively preparing for and facilitating discussions on sensitive topics, all while maintaining an environment that supports deep learning and mutual respect.
Led by experienced educators and facilitators from CTLI and IDI, this workshop delves into the art of navigating difficult discussions within the classroom.
MSU’s Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation provides a spectrum of support for MSU's educators to conceptualize learning, teaching, and programmatic opportunities and develop solutions. Instructors and educators may receive support and consultation, professional development opportunities, learning experience design collaborations, and support for online and blended programs.
