“Classroom Management: Preventing and Responding to Disruptive Students in and out of the Classroom”

 

W. Scott Lewis

Date: Friday, September 20, 12:45-4:30pm

Location: Gifford Auditorium, Campbell Building

 

All faculty are encouraged to join colleagues from across campus in a half-day workshop facilitated by Scott Lewis, a national expert on classroom management. Over the last ten years, there has been an increase in the number and severity of behavioral incidents in the classrooms and on campuses. More and more, it is incumbent upon instructors to intervene in the classroom to address behaviors that can interfere with teaching and learning. Using a combination of lecture and case studies taken from actual incidents, this workshop will provide instructors with tools to appropriately address these behaviors. Participants will be provided with skills to prevent disruptive behaviors, to react to them, and tips on how to enhance their own campus procedures to address abhorrent behaviors. 

 

Participants will:

  • Gain a perspective on trends in behaviors on higher education campuses
  • Be able to utilize pedagogical methods and teaching strategies to reduce the probability of disruptive behaviors
  • Be able to appropriately respond to disruptive behaviors in and out of the classroom

 

Co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost; the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences; the College of Education; and the Noel Studio for Academic Creativity.
