Research output: Other contribution


As educators seek to create thoughtful, informed global citizens, we must not shy away from difficult issues or from introducing students to a variety of critical perspectives. Facilitating such challenging conversations can be difficult. In this panel, we will examine the ways in which faculty across a variety of disciplines create structured and unstructured discussions and dialogues on issues such as race, ethnicity, gender, politics, science, and religion. Panelists will share how they prepare for such discussions, respond in tense moments, and foster open discourse.
