Facilitating Challenging Conversations in the Classroom
Nov 4, 2021
12:00 PM - 01:30 PM
Having difficult conversations can help build inclusive and productive classrooms. We will explore managing discussions that involve emotionally charged, controversial topics and hurtful comments. Participants will learn evidence-based strategies for planning challenging conversations and handling unexpected moments.
The workshop will be held from noon to 1 p.m.; optional consulting with Center for Teaching staff will occur from 1 to 1:30 p.m.
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact in advance at
