Location: Graduate Student Center 305
Summary: In this workshop, we will develop strategies for promoting effective discussion in the classroom. We’ll identify what we mean when we talk about “discussion”: what does a good one look like, and what pedagogical purposes does it serve? Then we will develop practices for discussion that address those goals: how to create an environment conducive to discussion, how to provide your students with what they need to participate meaningfully, how to develop strong questions to prompt compelling and useful conversations, and how to develop lesson-planning strategies that work for you toward facilitating discussion.
All graduate students are welcome.
