CATL invited the campus community to attend a roundtable session on December 9, 2016. The subject of conversation was “teaching controversial topics in the classroom.” Attendees discussed a small series of scenarios to initiate a wider campus conversation about conflicts that may arise as instructors and students work together to fulfill the UW System’s mission to “search for truth.” These resources pertain to this topic and are for all who are interested. The scenarios used in the workshop are included along with some others as well as resources to address such various difficulties which may arise.
