Webinar and Online Discussion: Teaching Topics for Our Times - Empowered Teaching Toolkit: Beginning to Strategize for Classroom Incivility

Join your faculty colleagues for a new four-part series of conversations designed to help you succeed as an academic.

UofL is an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, an independent professional development, training, and mentoring community for faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students. We invite you to view the recorded webinar, then come prepared to virtually discuss and continue the conversation with UofL peers on the date noted below. Webinars are typically an hour in length and are designed to address core dilemmas in the Academy by teaching concrete and empirically-tested strategies for success. Online discussions will be held virtually in MS TEAMS on Friday mornings.

Facilitator: Chavella Pittman, Ph.D

Webinar Overview: Classroom incivility refers to any student behaviors that disrupt the learning environment. They can range from texting in class to outright intimidation or threats. Regardless of the severity of the classroom incivility, research suggests they are on the rise. Unfortunately, faculty may not be prepared to deal with them. This is particularly troubling for marginalized faculty who are more frequently the targets of student incivility.

In this webinar, you will learn about faculty’s experiences with student incivility, especially the experiences of faculty with marginalized identities (e.g. race, gender, sexual orientation). You will also learn about the potential consequences for faculty of unchecked classroom incivilities. Most importantly, this webinar will teach you strategies you can use - both inside and outside of the classroom - to address these problematic student behaviors.
