All IUP faculty members and teaching associates are invited to attend this Reflective Practice Large Group Meeting: “Facilitating Challenging Conversations in the Classroom: Preparing for the Unexpected or Unimaginable!” It will be held on Wednesday, November 7, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in Ackerman 116.
Human interaction, whether in the classroom or in the
street, can sometimes be messy and confrontational. As educators we have a
responsibility to successfully manage these somewhat abrasive situations
and to coordinate the aftermath to ensure an ongoing and productive
relationship with the other party or student. Techniques such as
De-escalation and Restorative Justice can be tools to utilize when met
with these antagonistic episodes. Sharing our experiences and talking about
successful response strategies can help prepare us, should we find ourselves in
a challenging situation.
Refreshments will be provided.
RSVPs are not necessary.
Please bring your I-Card to swipe for attendance purposes.
