As an instructor, oftentimes one faces situations where the behavior of a student could be defined as “challenging”. This is particularly complicated for teaching assistants who often lack the same level of perceived authority as the faculty of record, who are more easily considered peers given proximity in age, and who are still learning classroom management strategies. This session will help teaching assistants better define what is meant by “challenging”, identify communication techniques for addressing behavior, and outline resources available for resolving student concerns.
Facilitator: Dr. Shannon Lynn Burton, University Ombudsperson
