- This event has passed.
Do you advise or mentor students at Cornell? Do you want to be able to have meaningful conversations about identity and difference with the undergraduate and/or graduate students you support? Do you want to connect with other faculty and staff who have the same questions?
On October 8, 2019 (11:30am – 1:30pm), Intergroup Dialogue Project (IDP), the Graduate School Office of Inclusion & Student Engagement (OISE), and the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) at Cornell will offer a workshop on Learning from Challenging Conversations Across Difference for faculty and staff who advise or mentor undergraduate and/or graduate students at Cornell.
Faculty and staff who attend this session will practice tools for communicating across difference. After this session, participants should feel more familiar with the potential impact of social identity in challenging conversations, in addition to having tools for engaging empathetically with conflicting perspectives. Participants will also be guided through a process of reflecting on a challenging conversation across difference they’ve had with a student.
This workshop is open to faculty and staff who advise and/or mentor undergraduate or graduate students. Lunch will be provided.
