Canceled: Political Diversity in the Classroom

We live in a divisive political climate. Barriers of mistrust and misunderstanding exist even in a university setting. It's important to think about how instructors can better serve students — our future civic leaders and problem-solvers — and the communities that they will ultimately shape. Participants in this workshop will have an opportunity to reflect carefully on this question and will emerge with a concrete set of plans that can foster a culture of civil public discourse.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the benefits of engaging across politically diverse landscapes;
  • Articulate some professional considerations about the role of student dissent and political difference in university life; and
  • Implement a set of concrete steps designed both to manage classroom conflict over political differences and to train students to become more responsible and reflective members of a civil discourse community.

Seating is Limited.

Dial-In Information

Please register to attend. You will receive an email with the Zoom meeting link.

Please contact teaching@pitt.edu with any questions.

Thursday, November 4 at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
