 Yikes! What Just Happened???

In this highly interactive workshop, you will learn some effective strategies for setting up dialogues to be successful, and ways to handle situations if they do not go as planned.

Hot moments can be very stressful, and we are often left confused about what an appropriate response should be.

Join us to think through responses to questions like: How do I not let a hurtful moment pass, and contain the damage when unfiltered opinions or emotions erupt? How might I turn it into a learning opportunity? How do I frame questions to lead to more productive conversations? What are some alternatives for responding when your own emotions are high?

Facilitated by Annie Soisson, Tufts CELT

How do we create a classroom climate that promotes and sustains deep learning, encourages open-mindedness and gives students the skills to explore controversial issues from multiple perspectives?  In this workshop, we will explore this question through the lens of Mindfulness, using both experiential and instructional approaches. Faculty and student presenters will draw on research and experience to share how a range of mindfulness practices can foster deep learning and constructive dialogue.

Facilitated by Deborah Donahue-Keegan – Associate Director, SEL-Civic Engagement Initiative, Tisch College of Civic Life, Education Department, Christine Rioux – Public Health and Community Medicine, and Eleanor Shonkoff – Friedman School of Nutrition
