Difficult Conversations in the Classroom
Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning & Online Education
This guide, originally on the CETLOE website for the Fall 2020 semester, contains tips and resources on how to assist students going through difficulties in the midst of racial tensions, an economic downturn, and a public health crisis, and how to keep the classroom discussion civil and open. The guide also includes a list of websites and publications of potential use to faculty in preparing for this classroom situation. The guide text is taken from the archived versions of the original webpages at the CETLOE site. External links within the document will refer users to the versions of the listed publications and resources as they appeared when recorded by the archiving service during the Fall 2020 semester.
Although pertinent particularly for the unusual nature of the Fall 2020 semester, this guide is included in the Resource Library as it contains tips and resource listings that may be helpful to faculty and staff in the future.
