CTL Conversations: “Fostering Post-Election Constructive and Inclusive Discussion in the Classroom”
Tuesday, November 22, 1pm -2pm, CTL office, Newman Library building Room 123 (within the Subotnick Financial Center)
The purpose of the event is to gather as a community to informally share techniques and resources to foster constructive and inclusive classroom discussion in light of the divisive election. This is an informal meeting, meant to address the questions and concerns of its participants. Some of the items we may collectively discuss include:
- What should I do? We had a class discussion and I’m not sure if it was that great…
- How do I promote inclusivity? How do I respect bipartisanship?
- What if the discussion heads in an uncomfortable/angry direction?
- What are some ideas for different activities/lessons?
- What are resources and events at Baruch? At CUNY?
All faculty and staff are welcome. No RSVP necessary.
Can’t join in person but would like to listen in? You welcome to join our experiment of remotely listening in via WebEx. Email Allison.Lehr-Samuels@baruch.cuny.edu to learn more about joining in via WebEx.
CTL Conversations is a time for faculty to come together to informally workshop, brainstorm and discuss topics related to their teaching. Each week we’ll focus on a new topic and will invite members of the Baruch community who have expertise in the topic to be on hand, too. Faculty are welcome to drop in and leave at any point during the session. Refreshments available.
