Teaching in Tumultuous Times

We continue to live in unprecedented times with heightened anxiety and stress in regards to the crisis in the Middle East, continued anti-black policies & systemic racism, anti-queer and trans policies, financial crises, the COVID-19 pandemic, and a contentious political climate, among others. Students report feeling alienated, or confused, when instructors in their courses do not acknowledge such unsettling events, locally, nationally, and globally. As instructors, we make decisions whether, when, and how, to address such events with our students. This interactive workshop provides an opportunity for instructors to think and work through several strategies for engaging with students about emerging events on campus and beyond.
