Contributed by Wade Pickren

Monday, March 24, 2014, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
Facilitated by Traevena Byrd, Associate Counsel and Director Equal Opportunity Compliance

This session will discuss strategies for preventing and managing student conduct that interferes with learning and instruction. Participants are encouraged to share questions and ideas about best practices for dealing with students who are argumentative and challenging, who engage in racist or sexist talk, or who misuse technology (cell, laptop) during class. In addition, we will identify some of the behaviors that require immediate attention and connection to other campus offices, such as students engaged in physical posturing, making threats, or having a psychological crisis.
