Schedule: Friday, March 27, 2020, 01:30 PM – 04:00 PM
Location: The Oak Room, Vanier Hall
Instructors: Erica Stevens Abbitt, TBA
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.
