What’s the Secret to Creating Classroom Discussions That Work?

While discussions are effective pedagogical tools, they can be frustrating to students, lead to uncomfortable silences, and can be dominated by a couple of speakers. This webinar provides concrete strategies faculty can use to design and facilitate classroom discussions that create an effective and positive learning experience. Topics include principles for guiding class discussions and techniques for getting all students engaged. The presenter shares specific examples of strategies that can be used in a variety of disciplines and in various class sizes.
