Dis/Comfort in the Classroom

There are many reasons why we might feel uncomfortable in the classroom: mismatched expectations, inappropriate comments or sensitive topics, a lack of shared cultural background with our students, questions that force us off-script, or limited experience with student-centered teaching practices. This interactive workshop will give you opportunities to reflect on and discuss how to better embrace these moments as learning opportunities (for you and your students). 

Part of the International Scholars Forum co-sponsored by TEFD and the Graduate School Office of Professional Development; all international faculty, postdocs, and grad students are welcome!
