How to Engage in Healthy Conflict

Thursday, October 10, 2019
2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Online

Do you often feel drained by departmental drama? Do feel unclear how to handle conflicts that arise in your department? Are you unsure when, where, and how to manage conflict with people who will be voting on your tenure?

Academics are notoriously conflict avoidant and the inability to manage conflict can result in negative physical, emotional, and relational consequences for tenure-track faculty. So why not learn early in your career to master the SKILL of healthy conflict so that you can effectively manage conflicts as they arise and avoid carrying around all of the negative energy, anger and resentment in your mind and body. In this webinar, you will learn:


·         How conflict-management is an essential part of thriving in the Academy.

·         How to decide when to push-back and when to pull back in the face of conflict.

·         The difference between healthy and unhealthy conflict.

·         How to get clear about the role that power plays in resolving departmental conflicts.

·         Ten tips for engaging in healthy conflict

Create Presentation Visuals Worthy of the TED Stage

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

120 HR Building
903 W University Ave

Imagine you are giving the best presentation of your career. Your verbal delivery is captivating and masterfully choreographed with slide visuals and props that are attention grabbing, easy to understand, and even moving. This is what it means to use presentation visuals in a way that is “worthy of the TED stage.”

In this course, participants will learn about the common mistakes presenters make with their presentation visuals, gain insights into the way the human brain best processes information while experiencing a presentation, leverage visual techniques for making your content resonate and stick, use next-level techniques to plan a visual presentation, analyze examples from some of the world’s best presenters, and apply key design principles.

This course is helpful for both novice and even highly seasoned presenters. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop to this session to engage in hands-on design work activities in small groups.

Communicate Assertively

Wednesday, October 16, 2019
1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
120 HR Building
903 W University Ave

Assertiveness is a skill you can acquire, not a personality trait that some people are born with and others are not. When we communicate assertively, we express our feelings, thoughts, and wishes--standing up for our legitimate rights without violating the rights of others.

In this workshop, you'll learn to:


·         Distinguish between assertive, aggressive, and non-assertive (or passive) behaviors.

·         Include the three parts of an assertive message in your communication approach.

·         Listen assertively by concentrating your attention on the other person.

·         Respond appropriately to criticism.

Building on the topics discussed in "Communication Confidence," this workshop highlights communication skills that are essential in many day-to-day situations. Improve your relationships and personal effectiveness at work and at home: Attend "Communicate Assertively!"

Approaching Academic Honesty

Friday, October 18, 2019
10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
201 Bryant Space Science Center
UF Main Campus

How do cultural norms, religious beliefs, values, and educational experiences affect students’ understanding of our highly individualistic notion of “academic honesty?”

This workshop will help us reflect on our own expectations of what is and what is not “honest” in an academic setting as well as offer some insight into why students may struggle to interpret and meet our expectations. Participants will develop approaches to prevent acts of academic dishonesty among students and how to address it once it occurs.
