In order to take risks, students and teachers need to feel safe. It is always risky to challenge familiar assumptions and to credit opposing views.

For faculty members willing to risk engaging controversy in their classrooms as a means for developing critical thinking and motivating authentic inquiry, this session will focus on methods for creating a safe place for such risk taking. We will ground our exploration within the history of academic freedom on college campuses and practice strategies for establishing student-generated codes of conduct. Register here for individual workshops,
