Teaching isn’t always or even usually “easy,” and a wide array of challenging situations can arise in the course of a semester. You may encounter students who are disengaged, distressed, combative, or suffering from addiction. Perhaps you find that you are not connecting with your students, or that some students do not get along with one another. You may have students who frequently complain—justifiably or not—about various aspects of your teaching, such as grading. While you may not encounter all of these issues, it is best to be prepared beforehand with some strategies for addressing such challenges.
Registration for University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops is mandatory. Registering for workshops ensures the distribution of pre-workshop materials and helps maintain the integrity of our attendance records.
