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 discussions around controversial issues including the O.T.F.D. (Open The Front Door) and A.C.T.I.O.N. communication frameworks.

These programs provide an opportunity for faculty, staff and graduate teaching assistants to extend their learning about teaching inclusively. For Inclusive Classroom resources and information about the Annual Inclusive Classroom Training, visit CELT's Creating an Inclusive Classroom website.
