Effective discussions can provoke profound learning, yet they can be challenging to create and particularly to sustain. In this interactive session you will pursue strategies for getting discussions going and for keeping them lively. You will discuss questions such as: What are effective questions? What can I do if a discussion seems to fall flat? What can I do about students who dominate or withdraw from a discussion? And finally, How can I encourage students to share diverse viewpoints with both respect and candor for each other?
