Critical Incidents in College Teaching

Deemed by participants as one of the most beneficial sessions offered during our orientations, Critical Incidents in College Teachings is a video of fifteen vignettes designed to facilitate a discussion of challenging teaching situations. The challenges represented by the vignettes include such topics as relationships with advisors, peers, and students, issues of sexual harassment and ethnocentrism in the classroom. Ideally, this is shown to a group so that ideas about how to handle the roles and responsibilities of a teaching assistant/instructor/faculty member can be shared.
