POSTPONED - Civility, Conflict, and Contradiction in the Classroom
This workshop will be rescheduled at a later date due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Do opposing ideas, dissonance and contradiction have a place in the classroom? Can combative points of view be channeled into productive dialogue? This workshop explores issues of diversity, civility, and contradiction in the classroom, with a focus on role-playing and mediation techniques. The goal is to explore the notion that working skillfully across different points of view, interests and beliefs can enhance the teaching and learning experience.
