Co-sponsored by: Rackham School of Graduate Studies and Intergroup Relations
Co-developed by the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) and the Program on Intergroup Relations (IGR), this four-week seminar allows participants to learn about and practice a range of effective facilitation strategies for use in U-M's classrooms. We focus on pedagogical techniques that productively engage student identity and experience in the learning process, as well as balance different voices and views. We will also discuss strategies for managing student resistance and conflict.
This seminar will survey a broad range of diversity and identity related issues that present themselves in classrooms and other learning environments. The curriculum over the four weeks will explore how social identities and diversity impact student and instructor experiences. Specific topics will include:
authority in the classroom
strategies for working through potential hot moments and conflict
impact of microaggressions in the classroom
Participants will leave this seminar with concrete strategies and action plans to implement change in their teaching contexts. Read more »
