This session addresses principles of professional conduct and classroom management for teachers as it relates to Title IX requirements and Harvard’s commitment to gender equity. We’ll discuss how one balances Harvard University’s commitment to the free exchange of ideas while maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which no member of the community is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any University program or activity on the basis of their sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Participants will learn how to handle a disclosure of a potential violation of the sexual harassment policy and participate in hypothetical scenarios based on real-life experiences of TFs.
This workshop is a part of Winter Teaching Week- a series of intensive workshops offered during J-Term in conjunction with January@GSASfor graduate student teachers at every stage, from just starting out to looking toward the job market.
Led by Seth Avakian, Program Officer for Title IX and Professional Conduct
