Are there ways to mend the classroom community when someone has said something offensive in class? How can you prepare for unexpectedly difficult conversations—especially if you teach controversial topics? These are a few of the questions we will explore in a “studio” format. A Difficult Conversations Studio is a meeting of 10-12 faculty in a room where everyone commits to learning and sharing their insights about creating community and civility in the classroom. Sessions are 90 minutes long. During the session participants will identify challenges related to discussion of contentious topics, pose questions to deepen collective understanding, and offer solutions for all to draw from. Refreshments will be provided.
