Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning

Over the last decade, trigger warnings have received both adamant defense and sharp criticism in college classrooms. This session explores the history of trigger warnings as well as their potential benefits and downsides in the classroom. By the end of the session, participants will have a better understanding of how they can handle sensitive topics in the classroom; they will also be able to justify the use or non-use of trigger warnings in the classroom.

 

This is a TA-to-TA workshop, designed for TAs and offered by one of CITL's Graduate Affiliates.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
