Event is open to all Langara College employess.
Have you taught in a classroom with students of all: ages, abilities, language levels, cultural differences, or technical skills? Have you ever had to deal with cheating in your class but didn’t know how to approach the student? The answer is mostly likely – yes!
Join us on September 9, 2017 as present a full day of learning! We’ve assembled a panel of experts who will be on hand to provide you with their insight and share with you their experiences, anecdotes, and tips on how to deal with today’s ever changing classroom.
Whether you are a new instructor or a seasoned one, you’ll find much of value in the workshops and in your new/renewed connections with colleagues. You can also look forward to a surprise or two from our Dean and a free lunch!

Briefly, we have 2 really great session planned:
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.
