Do your students have strong reactions to your courses? Course content that elicits strong emotions can inspire students. It can also cause distress and anger, and discourage students from participating. This workshop draws on the practice of LSE academics, on pedagogic research, and on counselling practice to develop strategies for maximising learning. We will discuss both advance planning and in-the-moment responses. Participants can share their tools for planning and establishing a productive teaching environment, and how they handle strong student responses.
This is part of the Teaching Contested Topics series. Other sessions in this series are New rules of engagement: mediating dissent, debate, and dialogue in the classroom and From contestation to conversation – bridging differences in the classroom.
