WEST CONNECT - The Faculty Professional Development Academy
10:00 - 12:00 | Winlock | Facilitator - Prof. Clare Norris
As community college faculty members, we are experts in our disciplines. Of course we don’t always have the best tools to deal with student frustration, disappointment, and confrontations. When things go wrong, we don’t always know what to do. In this workshop we will not only offer research-based, practical, easy-to-apply strategies to engage students and defuse confrontations, but we will capitalize on our colleagues’ expertise and give you a chance to share your winning strategies.
