Helping Students Succeed in Class Discussions
February 9 @ 1:10 PM - 2:25 PM
Faculty were excited to get back to real-time, in-person discussions in the classroom this year but discovered that many students were not as skilled in or confident about participating in discussions as they had hoped. If we want students to discuss challenging problems or complex concepts, we need strategies for getting them accustomed to and involved in engaging discussions. In this session, we will explore why and how classroom discussions go well (or don’t go well) in our courses. Participants will learn and experience strategies for designing and managing discussions that can be adapted to any classroom situation.
