Graduate Student Workshop: Facilitating Classroom Discussions

Event Location: 
Study Room 1, Lucille Little Fine Arts Library
Event Date: 
Wednesday, March 7, 2018 - 4:30pm

Event concludes at 5:45.

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.
