Disrespect and Disruption in the Classroom: Strategies for Prevention and Response
January 25 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
Disrespectful treatment of other students based on social identities or other characteristics, interruptions of faculty presentations, viewing of inappropriate websites during class: many faculty have felt that such student behaviors are on the rise in recent years. How can you set up a learning environment that prevents such incivilities–and respond effectively as a teacher if they do occur? This workshop will focus on specific research-based strategies for setting up and maintaining respectful classrooms and provide opportunities to practice these approaches.
Host: Fiona Lee, LSA Associate Dean for DEI and Professional Development
Facilitators from Intergroup Relations (IGR) and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT)
Open to all faculty campus-wide
