Rebroadcast - Tuesday, November 29, 2016 | 1:00 PM Central

The recent presidential election results may have resulted in some heated moments in your classrooms—from those that disagreed and agreed with the outcome. Both sides want to be heard and understood.

As an educator, how you respond can make a big difference in maintaining a supportive environment for your students. A difficult discussion can be a teachable moment, or it can create a defensive climate that has a negative impact on your students’ learning experiences.

When handled correctly, conflict and controversy can be powerful learning tools. But some faculty may not be well prepared to handle these types of discussions, especially when hot moments arise. They may choose to have a superficial conversation about the subject or, worse, ignore it completely, which can be a barrier to learning.

Fortunately, there are techniques you can use to handle hot moments and difficult conversations. To find out what they are, register to attend the rebroadcast of How to Create a Transformative Learning Experience for Students by Managing Hot Moments and Difficult Discussions in the Classroom, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016.

Listen as Dr. Tasha Souza offers proven strategies for managing difficult dialogue and responding to hot moments in the classroom. You’ll learn how to prepare for a challenging discussion and make it more productive as well as how to assess the outcomes of the experience and the impact it had on your students. You’ll come away with techniques you can use to turn hot moments into positive learning experiences.


This quote from the seminar sums up the direction of the program:

“… discussion is when people are exchanging ideas but dialogue is even more than that. It assumes the transformative power of speaking, listening, and understanding. So it's not just information sharing. It really assumes that it can be transformative. And the goal is not to persuade, but it's to clarify and truly understand different points of view.”


Whether you’re a faculty member, department chair, instructor, or discussion group leader—anyone who wants to learn about strategies to facilitate difficult discussions and handle hot moments in the classroom—this is one webinar you won’t want to miss.

For only $197, you and your entire team at one location can take part in this insightful online seminar and get the latest information on the subject from our expert advisor. Best of all, you’ll be able to connect personally with our speaker when we ask for questions from the audience.
