Engaging in conflict is challenging whether you are an experienced instructor or new to your role. A likely strategy is to ignore the behavior due to our own discomfort, concern over retaliation or fear that our intervention may cause more harm or disruption.

Through case study examples this workshop will explore Gerald Amada’s research from Coping with Misconduct in the College Classroom and provide participants with tangible strategies to disruptive behavior in a confident and fair manner.

This workshop is a required session for a certificate of completion in Fostering Proactive Learning Environments.  Register

For undergraduate students, reconciling their curricular requirements, cocurricular events, work and career preparedness, community engagement, and personal challenges can feel somewhat disjointed, and students therefore have a difficult time finding connections between all of these experiences (AAC&U/Carnegie Foundation, 2004). Integrative learning provides students with strategies to make connections between these within and beyond the classroom activities to help them apply their skills to new and complex problems and challenges.

This workshop explores teaching strategies and philosophies that help to engage students in activities beyond the classroom and then have students relate those experiences to their courses and curriculum. After reviewing current research and practices on integrative and experiential learning, including how the Center for Integrative and Experiential Learning supports IL and EL, participants will discuss strategies for encouraging students to reflect and make interdisciplinary connections between their experiences within and beyond the classroom to promote creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving.

This workshop counts as a requirement toward the Integrative and Experiential Learning certificateRegister


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
