Effective discussions foster learning, yet discussions can be challenging to create and sustain. In this interactive session with panelists who have proven success at discussion leading, you will pursue strategies for initiating discussions 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?
