Topic: Sexual Harassment and Bullying in Labs, Studios and Other Minimally Supervised Learning Environments. Data show that higher levels of harassment and bullying occur in learning environments such as labs and studios than in more traditionally supervised classrooms. Dean O'Loughlin will provide an overview and explanation of these data and faculty will be invited to share their strategies to protect students from harassment in varied learning environments. We will discuss how to make these spaces safer for students while still supporting the independent learning crucial to these learning environments. Program at 11:30 am and again at 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, meet in the St Peter Room. Co-sponsored with Provost's Office.
