Classrooms are one of the few places in an increasingly polarized world where students must engage with different perspectives in an extended manner. This can offer an opportunity for transformative learning experiences, but many teachers feel underprepared to foster meaningful discourse. In this three-part discussion series, we explore a framework of Universal Design that allows us to anticipate and ameliorate potential sources of conflict that inhibit learning, and also to lead discussions on course content that we anticipate being challenging for students. Participants will leave with tools for designing inclusive learning environments, setting goals for civility, articulating expectations, anticipating conflicts in class, and responding to conflict. We request that participants commit to attending all three parts of the discussion series: September 22, September 29, and October 6.
