Responding to ‘Hot Moments’ in the Online Classroom
October 6, October 20 and November 3
10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

A ‘hot moment’ in the classroom is an emotion-laden moment of conflict or tension that threatens to derail teaching and learning. ‘Hot moments’ are usually triggered by a comment on a sensitive issue such as a racist comment. Many faculty are uncertain how to effectively respond. This 3-part mini-series presents strategies and the opportunity to rehearse one’s response in order to feel confident in a real-life hot moment.
