Many instructors consciously avoid controversial issues in the classroom because of the difficulty involved in managing heated discussions. However, controversy can be a useful, powerful, and memorable tool to promote learning. This conversation will provide instructors with resources to facilitate classroom discussion around controversial issues including the O.T.F.D. (Open The Front Door) and A.C.T.I.O.N. communication frameworks.

*About CELT's Conversations on Teaching Inclusively*
This series provides an opportunity for faculty, staff and graduate students (who have a teaching role) to dialogue about teaching inclusively at Iowa State University. The intent of these conversations will be to help build a stronger teaching community, create collaborative partnerships, and develop effective teaching practices for meeting the diverse needs of our students. Each month we will choose a topic based on input from our teaching community.

Sample topics include:
* Identity and positionality; how it affects your teaching
* Inclusive projects and study groups
* Incorporating diversity issues more deeply into the curriculum
* Working effectively with different learning styles
