Their ability to engage students and facilitate meaningful dialogue in these moments not only furthers learning, but can also impact student success. Mismanaged conversations often result in unresolved issues, misunderstanding, and simmering conflict that undermine learning outcomes and campus-wide goals to create inclusive campus environments. We know this has been a particularly difficult year as students continue to challenge faculty and administrators to hear their concerns, engage in difficult conversation and make meaningful change on campus. Our expert presenter, Dr. Kathy Obear — the President of the Alliance for Change Consulting & Coaching and Co-Founder of The Social Justice Training Institute — will share facilitation strategies, training activities and resources to help deepen faculty members' capacity to maintain classrooms that support student learning and success. Participation Outcomes As a result of this webinar, you will take away: Tools to create an inclusive classroom from the start and negotiate working agreements that set the stage for meaningful dialogue. How to recognize when a classroom discussion becomes "difficult" for students and/or yourselves – get tools and approaches to de-escalate triggered reactions and promote engaged conversation. Criteria to decide whether to engage in difficult conversations in the moment or table for a future setting. Techniques to revisit classroom situations that did not further learning or group development so that everyone can learn how to do better the next time. We’ll meet from 2-3:30 pm September 27 in the LTC Meeting Space (028) to view the live webinar.  Register early, as we can accommodate 20 people.
