While the classroom can be a space for open, respectful dialogue, it can also feel isolating or even hostile for student learners. What can an instructor do to promote a space for positive, fruitful collaboration? What does it take to create a truly inclusive classroom climate? In this workshop, participants will discuss a series of interconnected factors shape classroom climate. Participants will also have the opportunity to consider ways to repair a fractured classroom climate. Finally, we will examine strategies for developing a classroom culture in which students feel heard, welcomed, and valued.
All workshops will take place via Zoom in Spring 2021. A link to the Zoom session will be sent out with the reminder email the day before the workshop. Attendees must plan to participate in the entire workshop in order to get credit for attendance towards the Professional Development in Teaching Program.
