The semester-long institute comprises a series of seven workshop-style Zoom sessions. Due to the interactive design of this institute, cohort registration will be limited to 30 faculty. Advanced Teaching Institutes are intended for faculty who have completed a previous CET Faculty Teaching Institute or the Accelerated Online Teaching Institute.
Getting Comfortable with Challenging Discussions will provide a supportive and informative space for faculty to engage in discussions of controversial topics and manage discussion conflicts. Institute facilitators, guest speakers, and participants will engage in the following topics
- Creating a classroom environment for productive discussions.
- Policies and laws on academic freedom and speech.
- Planning for challenging discussions in your course.
- Addressing current societal events in class discussions.
- Managing conflicts during class discussions.
