In the classroom instructors must strike a balance between approachability and authority. What are the consequences of being a tough prof? What are common problems that occur in the classroom? How do we deal with “that unruly student”? In this workshop we will discuss and share practical techniques for setting and communicating expectations. We will also analyze different ways of addressing challenging situations in classroom management. Participants will gain skills to shape their classroom dynamics, maximize student learning, and establish a positive and productive classroom environment. Light refreshments provided.
