At Stevens 107
The April meeting of PALs (Pedagogy and Lunch) is the 8th from 12-1 pm in Stevens 107 (the Honors Student Lounge). Please feel free to bring lunch (we have a kitchenette with a microwave, kettle, refrig, etc…). Last month’s PALs attendees determined that they wanted an “encore” discussion of trigger warnings. We will keep the same reading as last month, which is The Association for Psychological Science's article "The Following News Release Contains Potentially Disturbing Content: Trigger Warnings Fail to Help and May Even Harm" (607 words).
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?
