Do the faculty members at your school know how to respond effectively when confronted by uncooperative-or even aggressive-students?

From minor annoyances to major disruptions, difficult college students have no shortage of ways to test professors.

At the extreme end of the spectrum are those students who pose a real physical risk to faculty members and classmates, and must be handled accordingly.

Aspiring professors typically get no training in classroom management in graduate programs, so it is left to employing institutions and individual faculty members to rectify this growing skills deficit.


Your presenters provide faculty and administrators with the tools to successfully manage the full-range of student behavior problems in this 90-minute seminar.

Role play demonstration scenarios of problematic classroom behaviors are used in four demonstrations to share their recommended strategies for responding effectively.

We outline what not to do, in a humorous manner that promises to keep you glued to your screen.
