9/15 Workshop: Discussion Leading

Posted by on Wednesday, September 8, 2010 in Events.

Time & Date:4:10—5:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 15
Facilitator: Graduate Teaching Fellow, CFT
Audience: Graduate and Professional Students and Post-docs

Effective discussions can provoke profound learning, yet they can be challenging to create and  sustain. In this interactive session, we will explore strategies for initiating discussions and keeping them lively. Questions considered will include: What are effective methods for starting discussion?  What to do if a discussion starts to fall flat? How to manage students who dominate discussion?  How to encourage students who do not join in the discussion?  How to foster a discussion environment in which students feel free to share diverse viewpoints with candor and respect for others’ opinions?
