Viewing Difficult Conversations Through the Lens of Social Identity*

Tuesday, May 9, 1:30pm - 3:00pm

Searle Center Library
627 Dartmouth Place
Evanston, IL


Workshop Description:

The diversity of social and cultural identities that we all bring to our research and teaching environments influences our behaviors and our interactions with colleagues and students within them. Through guided reflection and case studies, graduate students and postdocs will identify aspects of their social identity, reflect on power and positionality in learning environments, and discuss and strategies that can be applied to understanding and preparing to manage difficult conversations toward positive outcomes.

Workshop Facilitator:

Professor Goldberg is the Director of the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, Assistant Provost for Learning and Teaching and Professor of Physics and Astronomy. He has more than two decades of experience in designing and implementing active learning workshops for graduate students and postdocs, and is co-author of two MOOCs developing learning and teaching skills for future faculty. Having recently arrived from Boston, he is excited to start working with the graduate student and postdoc communities at Northwestern.
