How Do I Handle This? Faculty Workshop on Dealing with Challenging Situations In and Out of the Classroom

The Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) presents "How Do I Handle This? Challenging Situations In and Out of the Classroom," Wednesday, September 18 (repeated Thursday, September 19), from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m., in the Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library. Refreshments will be served.

This faculty workshop focuses on student incivility. Student incivilities in and out of the classroom are uncomfortable situations, whether it's texting or talking during class, dominating a discussion, using a laptop for non-class purposes, exhibiting prejudicial behavior, or other discourteous and disrespectful behavior. This workshop will focus on what could have been done to prevent or mitigate these incidences and what can be done if the behavior occurs. Register here.
