As educators, your connections with students play a pivotal role in shaping their academic journey and contributing to the overall classroom atmosphere. Navigating faculty-student dynamics within the classroom is crucial for fostering a positive learning environment. This workshop offers space to discuss and apply skills to manage relationships with students and the classroom when conflicts, tensions, or challenges arise. Through open dialogue and scenario-based discussions, we'll delve into identifying behaviors—both individual and systemic—that can impact the classroom atmosphere. Together, we’ll reflect on how to facilitate a healthy and supportive learning environment that benefits both faculty and students.
