Teaching in Turbulent Times Resources

During winter 2018, TEP and its campus partners hosted workshops meant to support faculty and graduate student teachers as they considered teaching in a climate of heightened political tension, increased complaints about faculty and student classroom behaviors, and real vulnerabilities for some members of our community.

See TEP’s “Difficult Topics/Strong Emotions/Challenging Moments” packet.
