Preparing for "Hot Moments" in the Classroom and on Campus 


A "hot moment" is a sudden eruption of tension or conflict in a group setting. Hot moments can emerge in the classroom, athletics practice, meetings, or any other group setting.


Are you prepared to handle a hot moment if it were to emerge in a setting where you are facilitating? What might you need to consider about managing these moments with diverse groups or in virtual settings (or partly virtual, as in the HyFlex classroom)? Can you anticipate when "hot moments" are likely to show up (such as around particular course content, discussion topics, or current events) and plan for them in advance? Are you prepared to be flexible in your planning if a major event or crisis causes a hot moment to intrude? How can you use a hot moment as an opportunity to advance learning, empathy, dialogue and community?

In this webinar series, Dr. Tiffany Galvin Green, Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Megan Wilson-Reitz, Administrative Coordinator for Diversity and Equity, will lead a discussion on best practices for engaging "hot moments" and converting them into opportunities for learning, growth and dialogue.
