We are all humans and, therefore, conflicts will arise, even in the workplace. And there is a right way to handle these types of (sometimes unavoidable) situations. We must remember that not only are we professionals and expected to act as such, but more importantly, we have a constant audience of students who look up to us as their role models. While conflict handling and resolution are life lessons seldom taught in the classroom, there is much our students can learn from watching how we conduct ourselves outside of our classrooms. Teachers enrolled in this course will explore healthy, productive ways of preventing professional conflicts, deescalating unfortunate situations, and handling problems efficiently and effectively.
