Content Advisories: Productive Discomfort in the Contemporary Classroom

February 15, 2019

Friday, February 15, 2019
2:00 PM–3:00 PM
Room: Workshop Room 1

Price: $0 (free and open to the public, but advance registration is required)
Limit: 35 people

This workshop demonstrates a new approach to dealing with discomfort in an academic setting. Students of art and art history necessarily examine difficult, provocative, even distressing material in the college classroom. Our Content Advisories Module includes six adaptable discussion exercises, enabling faculty and students to navigate position taking, empathy building, and communication.

Leaders: Hope Childers (art history) and Bethany Johnson (psychology), associate professors at Alfred University, share a commitment to fostering productive discomfort in their different disciplines.

Free and open to the public, however, advance registration required. Depending on availability, tickets may be obtained on-site in the conference registration area.

There are no refunds on registration for the Annual Conference, Special Events, or Workshops.
