At Stevens 107
PALS (PEDAGOGY AND LUNCH)
Facilitator: Dr. Chris Kukk
The March meeting of PALs (Pedagogy and Lunch) is March 4th from 12-1pm in Stevens 107 (the Honors Students Lounge). Faculty, staff, and students are welcome. Please feel free to bring lunch (we have a kitchenette with a microwave, hot water, refrig, etc…). This month’s topic is about trigger warnings (as determined at the last PALs meeting) and we’ll base our discussion on The Association for Psychological Science's article "The Following News Release Contains Potentially Disturbing Content: Trigger Warnings Fail to Help and May Even Harm” @ https://www.psychologicalscience.org/news/releases/trigger-warnings-fail-to-help.html
Some questions and ideas to consider:
(1) Should trigger warnings be used in academic settings?
If no, why and what do you do instead?
If yes, why and how would you address the trigger warning problems outlined in the article?
(2) When you notice a student visibly upset about something in class, how do you handle it?
(3) How do you manage difficult issues, topics and/or material in class?
