Engaging in conflict is challenging whether you are an experienced instructor or new to your role. A likely strategy is to ignore the behavior due to our own discomfort, concern over retaliation or fear that our intervention may cause more harm or disruption. Through case study examples this workshop will explore Gerald Amada’s research from Coping with Misconduct in the College Classroom and provide participants with tangible strategies to disruptive behavior in a confident and fair manner.

 

This workshop is a required session for a certificate of completion in Fostering Proactive Learning Environments. In order to qualify for the certificate of completion, participants must attend four required courses and 2 electives.
