This interactive session will give participants opportunities to reflect, engage and discuss how to create a learning and student-centered environment, set a context that can effectively address challenging classroom dynamics, and better embrace the learning opportunities that emerge from difficult moments.

Goals:

  • Enhance participants’ awareness of the complexities of challenging classroom dynamics.
  • Explore teaching practices that foster an inclusive and equitable learning environment.
