Session on Academic Freedom, Freedom of Speech and Classroom Climate – Wednesday, Jan. 18
The Office of Academic Affairs is hosting another informal, interactive discussion session for faculty, academic staff and university staff to discuss legal and practical aspects of creating and maintaining a positive and productive classroom environment.
The event is 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 18, in University Center, room 275. Light refreshments will be available.
We will discuss basic legal concepts for addressing controversial discussions related to interactions with and among students. We will also discuss classroom management and engage in group discussions regarding hypothetical classroom situations. The goal is to provide instructors with the tools they need for managing their classrooms and interactions with students to promote a safe and respectful climate for learning.
