Teaching, Learning & Technology Workshop Registration




  • • Tools to create an inclusive classroom from the start – negotiate working agreements that set the stage for meaningful dialogue.
    • How to recognize when a classroom discussion becomes “difficult” for students and/or themselves – get tools and approaches to de-escalate triggered reactions and promote engaged conversation.
    • Criteria to decide whether to engage in difficult conversations in the moment or table for a future setting.
    • Techniques to revisit classroom situations that did not further learning or group development so that everyone can learn how to do better the next time.



  • • Apply a solid copyright framework on campus – avoid a lawsuit!
    • Take advantage of key exceptions, including fair use, that permit the use of copyrighted materials in education – know what you can do, because the law actually allows more than you might think.
    • Explain the key differences between online and offline uses of copyrighted materials – give your campus members tools they can use.
    • View copyright uncertainties from a risk management perspective – be able to successfully manage the challenges before mistakes are made.
