Responding to Tumultuous Events: Practice Teaching (Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan Series)

Click here to register for this event. 
Please be aware that this session will be held on north campus in the Gorguze Family Laboratory (Room 216). 

Acknowledging troubling events and tragedies (on campus, and on a national/international scale) is crucial for students’ sense of belonging in a class but can be challenging to do well, particularly when course content is seemingly unconnected to the event or tragedy.  This practice teaching session gives faculty an opportunity to address a campus incident with a small group of students in a simulated STEM classroom (with CRLT undergraduate student consultants playing the role of students).  Faculty can choose one of two approaches to addressing the incident with the “students”:  either deliver a brief (5-minute) statement or facilitate a short 10-15 minute discussion. After the faculty member practices their approach, the students and a CRLT-Engin/CRLT consultant will provide feedback. Following all of the presentations, faculty will reflect on the practice experience with their colleagues.

Note:  Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the Teaching in Tumultuous Times workshop prior to attending the practice teaching session.

This workshop is part of this year's Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series. Click here for registration information for the full series.
