Make Me! Understanding Student Resistance to Learning (DEI)

Ann Arbor MI 02-19-2020 02-19-2020

Student resistance to learning is a very common problem. Whether it takes the form of passive resistance (such as skipping class, failing to do the readings, being consistently late turning in assignments, or participating minimally during class) or manifests as more active resistance (focusing on surface approach to learning, disrupting class, arguing over grades, or complaining), student resistance to learning is one of the most frustrating and vexing challenges facing instructors. In this workshop we will explore a framework for recognizing, diagnosing, and addressing student resistance to learning opportunities. This workshop is eligible for 1 CPE credit. Facilitator: Frédérique Laubépin
