UPED631 Hot Moments in Teaching and Learning

Handling conflict or tension in the university classroom

Participants will be able to assess what knowledge and skills are helpful to educators when conflict and tension arise in teaching and learning situations, and will increase their capacity to address conflict as a learning opportunity for both educators and students.

This module addresses both hot moments that can be anticipated (i.e., controversial subject matter is part of the curriculum) and hot moments that can arise in any learning environment as a result of group dynamics, class discussion, or unexpected events.
