Participants will leave with improved understanding of how to balance their rights as educators with those of content creators. Please feel free to bring your lunch to this session.

Teaching in a Diverse Classroom
This lively panel discussion will cover experiences in diverse classrooms from language, to culture, to technical skills. The panel will address the challenges and positive experience of working with a diverse student population, and offer their own perspectives on meeting the challenges and celebrating victories.
There will be round table discussion of different topics related to diversity in the classroom and the challenges it can provide and how to work with and/or overcome those challenges. Participants will rotate from table to table and meet a panelist from the morning who will facilitate dialogue and resolution for different topics.
Student Conduct & College Integrity
As an instructor, what can you do, within College guidelines, if you are faced with a problematic student and need to find a way to keep control in your classroom.
Maggie will talk about processes, give tips on working with challenging students, give suggestions and ideas keeping within College integrity, while also giving instructors support and tools for a safe and calm classroom.
You will leave this workshop feeling equipped to work with College guidelines in supporting students in the classroom.
