CITRAL Workshops "Under Construction": Teaching Troublesome Knowledge

Thursday, April 15 at 10:00am to 11:15am

RSVP Here to receive the Zoom link.

Sometimes, students react in surprising ways to material that they encounter in our courses. They might experience anger, resistance, or confusion. Sometimes, expressions of those emotions can be challenging for faculty to deal with.

“Teaching Troublesome Knowledge” provides strategies that instructors can use with students to identify and name types of troublesome knowledge. Then, it provides ways for instructors to contextualize students’ learning experiences so that everyone in the course — instructors and students alike — have a stronger foundation to understand knowledge and learning in the course and deal with troublesomeness.

“Under construction” workshops are new sessions that the CITRAL team is developing based on instructor/graduate student input. These workshops include time after the workshops’ conclusions for participants to provide input into revision as we develop the ‘drafts.'
