Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 14:00 to 15:15

ESJ 0201

Note: This event is intended for faculty, staff, and advanced graduate students at the University of Maryland.

Do you say anything at all or just pretend like nothing happened? Do you ask students how they are thinking and feeling? Do you share your personal views or remain a neutral third-party? Managing hot topics and current events can be challenging for anyone, especially when they deeply affect the students we are here to educate. Join us for an open discussion on different philosophies and practical guidance for course instructors and assistants.
