Co-facilitated by staff from CRLT and The Program on Intergroup Relations (IGR), this six-week seminar allows participants to both learn about and practice a range of effective facilitation strategies for use in U-M's multicultural 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. At the end of the seminar, participants will have the opportunity to experiment and stretch their skills with techniques gained in a practice teaching session. Participants will receive a certificate of training after completing all six sessions, which meet Tuesdays 2:30pm-5:30pm (10/21, 10/28, 11/4, 11/11, 11/25, 12/2). By registering below, you will be enrolled in all six sessions.
The program is intended for GSIs who teach courses engaged with questions of social diversity, who want to enhance their ability to engage their students' social backgrounds, or who want to enhance their ability to teach students to work and learn productively with diverse others.
