Brown Bag Lunch: Challenging ‘Challenging’ Situations in the Classroom

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST


Tuesday, November 5, 2019
11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST


At this brown-bag lunch, we’ll discuss strategies for troubleshooting difficult teaching situations that arise unexpected in our tutorials. What do you do if you are challenged by a student on course content while in your tutorial? How do you help students navigate the fine line between constructive and destructive critiques of course content? How do you address problematic statements made in assignments or presentations while still making it a ‘teachable’ moment? 

Bring your lunch and your reflections on your teaching challenges. All questions, ideas, and reflections are welcome!

Participation in one of these Brown-Bag Lunch ‘n’ Learn sessions counts as one credit towards the Certificate Program. A maximum of one lunch can be counted towards the TF Certificate and up to two lunches can be counted towards the AUTP Certificate Program.
