Programme: Atlas 2021-22
Course: From contestation to conversation: bridging differences in the classroom

As teachers and lecturers, how do we ensure that our lectures and seminars, and the discussions that ensure therein, are thought-provoking instead of just provocative? As the culture wars swirl around us, teaching social sciences and humanities can and has become a fraught space for both, academics and students. In this session, we will share and explain key principles of classroom discourse that you can adopt to enable your students to engage with the ideas, arguments, and evidence rather than the rhetoric. We will consider examples from politics, science, culture, and business among other disciplines and evidence from across the sector in the UK and internationally.
Audience: Lecturers and teachers teaching contested or polarising topics, and those who wish to engender critical enquiry and healthy debate in their classes and seminars.
