Graduate Student Workshop: Facilitating Classroom Discussions

Event Location: 
Study Room 1, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library

Event concludes at 6:15.

Knowledge is often produced in communication with others. But encouraging and facilitating effective classroom discussions is challenging when faced with students who are silent, disengaged, or unprepared. Participants in this workshop will discuss strategies for facilitation, including encouraging student engagement and what to do when conversations are derailed or become heated. We will also look at the characteristics of productive discussion and the challenges of defining/assessing participation.

Graduate Student Workshop: Teaching Information Literacy (UK Libraries)

Event Location: 
Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library

Event concludes at 4:15.

The type of research that students are expected to do in college is different from high school. Research exists that shows that there is a gap to be bridged between instructor expectations and student research abilities and experiences. 
First year students report being fearful, anxious, and confused about research assignments. They find the research process difficult and frustrating. We often see research assignments that assume a level of sophistication that first year students do not have. This workshop will offer some recommendations that will help them design a more effective research assignment.
