How do we foster a sense of community and trust in our classes? How can we create a space where all students feel comfortable to participate and engage with us and their peer in authentic ways? What can we learn from the research about making our classrooms safe while encouraging the type of risk-taking that’s essential for learning, particularly when difficult topics arise? In this workshop, participants will learn about strategies for creating environments where students of all types of backgrounds have an opportunity to engage fully and feel safe, respected, and confident that their perspective is valued.
