This is the second of three programs for faculty and staff to address dangerous and threatening student behavior. The three programs create a series, as the presenters will build on concepts from earlier programs. However, each program provides clear and practical advice as a stand-alone product.
The presenters will take the participants through a series of case studies and examples of student behavior while offering concrete, practical skills to staff in order to better manage the situation at hand. While building from psychological theory and student conduct practice, the presenters will avoid becoming bogged down in “why we do this” and focus instead on the practical “how to do this.”
The presenters will engage in role-play dialogue and entertain discussion from the audience via online polls and chats to ensure the participants leave the program with practical guidance on how to manage various uncomfortable situations.
Program 2: This session will focus on addressing behaviors that begin to cause a classroom or office disruption. These behaviors impact the larger community and intentionally cause a level of disturbance to others. Five case studies will be discussed in order to best demonstrate proper management of these behaviors:
Case 1. Student has entitled, “world revolves around me” attitude
Case 2. Student is demanding and pushy with faculty
Case 3. Student is argumentative, challenging, and disagreeable
Case 4. Student engages in racist or sexist talk
Case 5. Student misuses technology (cell, laptop) in classroom
