Can We Really Talk: Conversations Around Diversity, Race and Inclusion in the Classroom Pt. 2
*This workshop is co-sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership
This semester, join us for interesting conversations around diversity, race, and inclusion in the classroom as we consider how the media plays a role in various aspects of our teaching.
Session Two - Managing Social Media’s Impact on Class Discussion
The average person spends approximately 2 hours and 22 minutes a day on social media. Therefore, many college students come to class after significant exposure to both positive and negative examples of productive discussion. In this session, we will explore the benefits and challenges that social media may present for constructive discussion and consider strategies that encourage healthy discussion. We will also consider ways social media may be productively incorporated into course discussions.
