Designing Dynamic Discussions
Wednesday, February 1, 2:30pm–4:00pm
ITLAL Underground (LI-B69)

What do students learn from discussion? Not much, unless you've designed and constructed a dynamic situation that guarantees students will engage in independent, analytical thinking. There are two key elements necessary to getting there: 1) carefully designed discussion questions that give students something significant and concrete to chew on and 2) a mechanism for getting students to interact with one another and with you, the instructor.  In this session, we will examine (and discuss!) why and how classroom discussions go well (or don’t go well) in our courses. Participants will experience techniques that can be adapted to any classroom situation.
